My intention was to run a 5k every month this year but I ended up having surgery the week prior to this run so I only got a 2 mile walk in. I also didn't take a photo as I was pretty bummed about it.

For my beautiful daughter that shocked my soul when she told me she was going to the Marines. I was scared, uncertain but I trusted she made the best decision for her. Alexcia, momma bear loves you! Entering the military I didn’t know I was going to get a son, but she also made me a mother in law. Very proud.

I took my family for a hike in Palo Duro Canyon. The weather was beautiful. I chose the canyon because this was one of my Marines favorite places to go when he was home. What better way to honor military children than to choose a place my Marine child loves.

GG Tina Sissy

Run/Walk: 10k plus 2xtra miles in 02:13:47

4/17/2021
We as a Mother, Auntie and sissy ran our run in honor of Rct. Sanchez who is currently at MCRD San Diego following his dreams... The 8.97 mile run was cold at 27° with a real feel of 9° 🥶 and snowing 🌨 most of the way. This was tough but nowhere near the pain and struggle my son is going through to be called a US Marine. Well worth it.

I participated in this event to honor all of the children in military families who sacrifice so much and share so much with so many. Not everyone realizes the sacrifices that Military Kids make on a daily basis and the challenges that they face. I also run for my Marine, my son, my hero.

My husband is a retired Marine and I'm still Active Duty Air Force. I started running these events in January when my oldest son shipped off to quarantine. He just earned the title of US Marine last week and I couldn't be more proud. This run is very special. Our kids have moved and had us absent for periods in their lives and I know it hasn't always been easy, so today I run for all military kids, but especially for mine...Val, Conner, and Maison.

I ran today in weather that was 20 degrees more than I usually run in. I then remembered my son telling me about his 2 hr workout carrying a 50# sack thru most of it. He is my inspiration and the reason why I continue to run! ❤🤍💙

My son is off the grid right now and can't be reached for two weeks. I pray daily for his safety and think of all the Parents and kids of Marines who can't be reached for much longer periods of time.
