Best Damn Race Orlando -“Winner” Disqualified

I ran in the 2021 Orlando Best Damn Race Half marathon today and I'm proud to day I won 1st place. In a race with 1,000+ participants I finished the race 80mins (one of the best clock times in the races history) it's God blessing me with great friends that kept me true to my strict training regiment that made this possible! What an amazing feeling to have a goal and exceed my wildest expectation through honor and integrity. Work hard and anything is possible in this life... I won this Gold medal for all of us!
