Hi everyone, I am Estela Cisneros and this year I have the honor of running the 2016 Marine Corps Marathon as part of Team Red, White and Blue (RWB)! I became a runner over a decade ago, but did not run my first official race until September 2012. Since then I have run countless 5Ks, 10Ks, mud runs and half marathons. As a runner, the Marine Corps Marathon is one of the coveted runs, and I am beyond excited to be running it this year! I joined Team RWB in March 2015, and looking back, it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! Team RWB's mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. I myself am not a veteran, but that is what makes RWB soo great - civilians can join, too! I have family and friends who have served, and through RWB, I am able to extend my support for them, as well as other veterans, long after their years of service. I joined RWB in support of a veteran, but looking back, I myself have benefited from this amazing group of people far more than I ever imagined! Through running with a charity bib for Team RWB, I will be raising money for our organization. Thank you for helping me accomplish this goal, and for your support of Team RWB!
