Marine Corps Marathon
Date: October 27, 2019
Location: Washington, DC
My name is Matt Christensen and I am the proud stepdad of US Marine Owen M Cullen. I am running the Marine Corps Marathon on October 27th, 2019 in Washington DC to show my support and to honor not only Owen but the other US Marines who fearlessly serve and have served our country. My dad was in the Air Force and my brother was in the Navy. I have not served in the military but I do currently work in Law Enforcement and work alongside some great veterans of the US Military.
My stepson Owen has wanted to join the Marines from a young age and has always wanted to go into the infantry, which he is doing. He graduated high school early so he could go to boot camp after turning 17. He shipped off to MCRD San Diego on April 29th and will graduate on July 26th! I am so proud of his dedication and willingness to put his life on the line to protect our country. With everything he has done to get to this point in his life, I figured the least I can do is run 26.2 miles to show him how proud I am and to show my appreciation for his service as well as all of the men and women who selflessly serve our country!
