I found TMP the first year I ran MCM 2016 and this will be my sixth year! I believe in supporting the mission of this organization and appreciate everyone who continues to support me! It is an enormous honor to run miles in dedication for those who have served and continue to serve. I have met so many parents of currently enlisted Marines, as well as Gold Star families, that encourage and motivate me to continue to train for a marathon, even when it's tough, I know they are going through much tougher missions... I also want to continue to honor all those who serve for our freedom, past, and present. Especially my TMP family who has become another family, former classmates who have served, and for my best friend, Jennifer Flemons Bader, whose dad was a retired Marine. Also supporting the brother of another running friend, Alisa Mueller, who lost her brother, U.S. Army Captain David J.P. Thompson, in Afghanistan in 2010. This year, I am a proud godmother of JP Kuhn, currently enlisted Marine who graduated in November 2020. Ooh-Rah!

This year again, I will be a co-coach of TMP along with Shannon Perez. I will be running a lot of local races in the Kansas City area, as well as the Marine Corps Marathon (October). I look forward to being back as a coach for another year with TMP and helping our team cross the finish line, as well as motivation through our training season.

I want to say thank you in advance for your support of my fundraising goal. I hope this year to surpass my fundraising goal of $300, without your help that won't be possible. Semper Fi!
