First I saw blog posts from a bunch of my friends who had signed up... and felt pangs of jealousy.
Then I had a long discussion with Moon about marathon possibilities.
And before I knew it, I was scouring the internet for charity bibs.
All of this to say: I am proud to be running the 40th Annual Marine Corps Marathon as part of the Diabetes Action Team. I considered other charities, some of which required smaller minimum funds raised - but diabetes was a major player in my maternal grandfather's death, and DAT gives me the opportunity to run in his memory.
So yeah! Here I am, back on the road to MCM. Who will I see out on the course?
