Alittle after my mom passed away about 3 and half years ago. I made a promise that I would do a full marathon in memory of her, since she meant so much to me, that I want to keep my promise to myself to honor her support and everything. She was a very encouraging person, and supportive. She just cared about everyone. I have several family members that have been in the military, and My brother just retired, and I just feel like I want to do what I can to support all the families and what they have went through.
