When your kid completes boot camp you gotta do something
crazy awesome to support that right??
What to do? Having just donated a kidney to a stranger
(1/2/2019), my friend said: 'you had 2 kidneys, donated
1, so that's 1/2 right? And half of 52 years old is 26 so
you wanna run the Marine Corps Marathon with me?' And
looking for something crazy awesome to do in support of
my boy, I said yes.
Finishing the 2019 MCM I was elated! Swimming through the
rain that day, a once in a lifetime experience - check
that box for running a marathon! But I'm back! It was a
most incredible experience to meet more members of my new
Marine family: on the Metro, on the Mall, in line the
morning of, the crowds lining the course, and during the
run.....a most wondrous weekend!
So the support of my boy and my growing Marine family
continues. I'm once again teaming up with Team Marine
Parents to help bring awareness and support the charity
programs of this awesome organization.
2020 marks two incredible anniversary years: 245 years of
the Marine Corps (Semper Fi!) and 45 years of the Marine
Corps Marathon (OOH-RAH!). Please join me in supporting
the Marines with anything you can contribute.
