She registered for this race months ago, and she had no idea that plans were being made at her husband's base for the Marines and civilians to run it there, too. She found out about the plan last week, via a video sent to her by her husband.
The video was also sent to the marathon officials, who notified the newspaper. Our daughter's story was on the FRONT PAGE of yesterday's paper. She was photographed and interviewed last Thursday when she went to pick up her race packet.
My husband designed a special shirt for her to wear during the race. The back of the shirt says it all.
Congratulations, Sweetie! Your dad and I are so proud of you.

The title of the article is a mistake ... it says that our son-in-law is a Marine and he isn't.
He is a civilian crew chief with the base fire department.
