Linda McCulloughLinda will be participating in the following for 2017:
42nd Marine Corps Marathon
Date: October 22, 2017
Location: Washington DC
I have been running since 2009. I had completed many 5ks, 10ks, & 1/2 Marathons by 2012. In 2012 my friend And neighbor died rather quickly from stomach cancer. I choose to run and raise money for Dana Farber in her memory. I trained very hard in 2013 for The Boston Marathon. I however, with 4500 other runners were unable to finish that day, because of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. I was invited back in 2014 to finish what I started, and I did! After training for two consecutive years people would ask, "will you run a marathon again"? My response was always "never say never...but probably never". Let's flash forward to 2017. I am the Mom of two wonderful sons. My oldest graduated boot camp August 2016. My youngest enters boot camp August 2017. I find I'm going to need to divert my energy into something positive, rather than the fact I'm now an empty nester. I can not think of a better way to honor my two sons, who have chosen to serve our great country. I will help raise money for a great cause in the process. Semper Fi
