My name is Laura Schubert. I am a 40 year old mother of two children, ages 10 and 14. They are both very active in sports. My husband, Jay, and I have been married for almost 16 years. I have been employed with U.S. Paint Corporation for 17 years and work in the Environmental, Health, and Safety Department.
I decided that I would sign up for a marathon sometime this year to check it off my bucket list. I’ve done a couple of half marathons but this is my first full marathon. My sister, Michelle Foster, said she was going to run the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. on October 30th 2016. When she said she was signing up, I thought it would be great to run with her. Her son, my nephew, joined the U.S. Marine Corps last year. I’m a very proud aunt and would love to run this marathon in his honor. I am looking forward to this incredible experience.
My name is Michelle Foster and I am a 39 yr old mother of 2. I have been married for 17 years to my wonderful husband, John. I started running in 2009 as a tool to quit smoking—and in 2010 I ran my first half marathon. As of the start of this year I now have 21 half marathons on the books. My son joined the Marines, and we are incredibly proud of his choice. He takes great pride in his accomplishments—you can see in the way he carries himself that he is proud to be a United Stated Marine—and I am proud to be his mother. I also have a daughter, Grace, who excels in sports and academics.
I am employed as a 911 dispatcher, as well as police/fire/EMS dispatch. I love my job—but at times due to the nature and types of calls it can be a bit stressful. Running is my therapy. It helps me deal with the stressors my job creates. I have signed up for the MCM full in October. This will be my first full marathon. I like the distance of the half marathon, but have always wanted to try a full marathon. I want to do it to honor my son and all the things he has accomplished!
