VIDEO: Boston Marathoner inspires Carl Sundahl students

At the 122nd Boston Marathon on April 16, Folsom resident Shadrack Biwott placed third among 14,000 male racers in the annual race.

It also happens that Biwott is the father to two children - a fifth grader and a Transitional Kindergarten student - at Carl Sundahl Elementary School in Folsom. Biwott visited the school on April 20 to speak to students at an outdoor assembly, to inspire them to do well and persevere in their upcoming state tests.

"Work hard, persevere and everything will be okay," Bitwott told students during his simple and important message.
