On March 19th I received a very exciting email, and it went like this:
Congratulations. The MCM Lottery has been conducted and you have reason to celebrate as one of the officially registered participants in the 39th Marine Corps Marathon to be held on Sunday, October 26, 2014 in Arlington, VA.
Let’s get this marathon show on the road…literally! It feels appropriate to end with an inspirational quote:
“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”
Haruki Murakami, author of What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
