Marine Corps Marathon Preview
Despite the government shutdown that had threatened both the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday and the Army Ten-Miler from last weekend, the classic event was saved and now there is even more of a reason for everyone involved to celebrate.
This marathon will not only be a great test of what each runner is capable of achieving physically on the course, but it will also be a true showing of the good nature of the people in the United States. In the perfect representation of the melting pot known as America, the Marine Corps Marathon will feature people from all walks of life trying to achieve the same goal.
It doesn’t matter where they come from—it’s all about where they’re going.
While the natural beauty of the competition and the heartwarming stories of soldiers and their fallen friends will make this a memorable day, the course itself will help add even more intrigue to this event.
Not only will runners be treated to a flat course that should help boast optimal times, but the route is also lined with wonderful monuments that represent the magnitude of what the military has given the United States.
The Marine Corps Marathon is a celebration of the hard work from all of the military members that have served this nation and a dedication to the human spirit and what it can achieve. This is a race all Americans should support.
