I have lived my entire life in a small agricultural community and have loved it. I have taught middle school students for 25 years and in my spare time I love to exercise, spend time with my dogs and dream about retirement. A few years ago a good friend of mine encouraged me to try long distance running with her and a few others. I am still running with that awesome group of Christian girls today. Running for me is not only good exercise but therapy for my soul and great socialization with some of the best friends I have ever had! I have done several half-marathons and one full-marathon. The Marine Corps Marathon will be my 2nd full marathon and my very first trip to our nationís capital, which I am so excited about! One of the precious ladies I run with is a proud Marine Corps Mom, Jackie Tipper. Jackie and her husband Chris have done the MCM before and cannot say enough about how amazing the experience is! I cannot express how proud I am to have the opportunity to run the MCM in honor of their son Christopher Tipper and all other Marines who selflessly give of themselves for me! Thank you for any donation to MarineParents.com, no matter how large or small; it is very much appreciated!
