This was my 1st virtual run. My inspiration is for both of my kids. My son is currently serving and has pushed me to do the unthinkable. I see he is tired after training but doesn't give up. My daughter has always been there to tell me everything will be ok and to keep going. She's a health care worker and throughout the pandemic has been amazing to her patients. I am one proud MoM. This was for both of them. I walked a little over a 5k, and it felt amazing. I look forward to doing another virtual event.

This was my first event back after losing the majority of my vision. Thankfully my vision loss is only temporary! Completing this event reminded me of the challenges that our Marines face and overcome every day. This walk is for my hero, my son, my Marine and for all of his brother and sister Marines, past, present and future! Can't wait for the next one!

I draw inspiration from my family daily. However, I wanted to honor my Marine. I have cervical dystonia, a neurological disorder which causes the excessive involuntarily contractions of my neck muscles, which makes it difficult to walk. By completing this virtual run, I am fearless as he is--my Marine. Thank you to my family for their love and support in this endeavor. I hope to participate in more virtual runs.

This is the most I've ever done on the elliptical and I've lost over 25 pounds since the January event. I am over the top proud of myself and so thankful that I've got this challenge each month from Marine Parents. It's really motivating. I'm a strong woman, and I was proud to participate in honor of strong women like Rosie the Riveter and in honor of all women in the month of March. It was an incredibly meaningful event for me this month!!

We rode today in support of my nephew Jordan, who is currently at Boot Camp in California.

First 5k of the year for me and it was rough! I chose a hard course of steep hills on a day with 40 mph winds on purpose. My Marine recruit is my inspiration. When I wanted to give up and my body wanted to give out, I used my son as my focus point to keep going.

I told my son as he was leaving for boot camp that I would do a "run" in his honor. I had been on bed rest for over a year and waiting for anther procedure to be done in my back. We both joked it was virtual so I could watch someone do it! I had another recruit mom encourage me to try it! I did it and surprised myself and my new Marine!! Thanks for the encouragement Becky!!! My Marine was shocked and proud!! This is just the first step for me to get back into physical activities!!

Special shout out to my grandmother who raised 9 children, mostly alone, while her husband served in the US Navy and who died when her youngest was only three months old. She’s my real life hero!

I joined and participated in this month’s 5k for a few reasons. For one, the theme Rosie the Riveter to me, represents rolling up my sleeves and supporting our service members in any way that I can. Contributing to a non-profit organization is just a small way that I can help participate in helping someone. My second reason, staying mentally strong while my son is currently in Bootcamp. Having this goal to work up to and look forward to has helped me cope while missing my recruit. And finally, this virtual event brought my family and me together through this pandemic. We all either walked, ran, or cycled together, from all distances, and it offered the opportunity to feel connected. My son and I did a 5k back in November together, knowing that he was getting ready for Bootcamp. He was my cheerleader and led me along the whole way. Today, as I did the 5k, his words, and his smile were with me and inspired me the whole time. Thank you for offering these virtual events, my family and I enjoyed it so much that we will definitely do this again!

Quite a few things raced through my mind this morning on this run. There have been a number of strong women in my life who made me stop and think, " Wow! I want to be like her." They've modeled strength and determination. I was raised and loved by one of them! I guess what continued to run through my mind were the current female recruits of Lima Company in San Diego. I'm so impressed with female Marines! OohRah to all of the brave women in the military and in the civilian world who truly make the world go round. Thank you MarineParents for a kick ass virtual experience just like Rosie!
