Today I ran the #ArmyTenMiler with @TeamRWB for SPC Adam Hamilton. My wrist kept reminding me why I was there. 🇺🇸

From Stars and Stripes:

The run was just Jepleting’s second 10-mile race ever, lending strength to her goal of joining the Army’s World Class Athlete Program and eventually competing in the Olympics.

“It means my dream is coming true,” the 28-year-old said. “I’m proud of the Army and representing them in races like this and even more to come, I’m just proud.”
