Running for my brothers

The Marine Corps Marathon... This one has been on my mind for a while. My friend Kevin ran it last year and my running buddy Grace (who trained with me for NYC 2007 and WDW 2009) is planning on it. Not sure what my hesitation is, but I have to do this one.

Just read Marathon Chris' MCM race report. Her incredible dedication to the Marines at the very last part gave me the conviction that I need to do this for my brothers. Both my younger brother and brother-in-law are Marines. Both served a 4 year tour and have gone through stuff that I can't even imagine in my lifetime.

I will be signing up for registration opens. For these men.

My brother Peter.

My brother-in-law Eddie.

I agree that MArathon Chris's report was fabulous. I can't wait to follow your training!

No way, that was your brother Eddie? He's famous!! And very cool that Peter is a Marine too.

Yes, you must do this race!!!

Yes, Shirley. That's him. It's funny because we were watching it on TV when the day unfolded and my sis was like, I know he's around there somewhere! Then she gets a call from his CO moments later... What sucks is that people didn't think it was appropriate for him to have done that because they didn't think he was American... (The guy was born and raised in NY his entire life!)
