EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2015
I never wanted to run a marathon; half marathons were enough of a challenge! My father, a Marine and Vietnam Vet, encouraged me to run a full a marthon last year and I told him I would do one - not knowing those would be our last words.
I completed the 2015 Boston Marathon in his memory and now I will be running the Marine Corp Marathon in his memory, in honor of the Marines and to rasie money for the Mass Fallen Heroes.
I would truly appreciate any donations to this great local charity to help me secure my place in the Marine Corp Marathon.
