Hi! I'm Shannon. Like many others, I became familiar with Marine Parents when my son went to boot camp at MCRD. Marine Parents has been an awesome source of support. Not only with the family groups but also with the wealth of information they provide as we stumble through the process. And, best of all.. Keeping us in true Marine Moto form!
I have been a runner for...ever. I am a Half Fanatic, #53. But, I have yet to run a full marathon and can't say that I ever truly wanted to, (Okay, maybe I've thought about it). But, with my son's second deployment, I made it my goal to push myself harder and further than I have before. And, what greater accomplishment than to run the 41st Marine Corps Marathon. This is an extremely meaningful run for me but to say that I am not nervous would be a lie. I will remember all the motivation I poured out to my son and now my son will be my inspiration.
The pride a parent feels for their child who has chosen to join the military is immense! The feeling to do something, to be involved, to somehow help is hard to satisfy. This small, selfish effort is the least I can do for an organization that not only helps Marine families but helps Marines as well. And, that is what is most important to me.
