For the Fighting

wear blue: run to remember has a strong focus on remembrance of the fallen; our recent participation in the Marine Corps Marathon showcased the strength of that aspect of our community. Veterans Day gives us an opportunity to highlight and honor a second aspect – those currently serving and those who have served.

26.2 Miles for James: Katie Groves Shares her Motivation for the 2014 Marine Corps Marathon

I am somewhat new to the family, but I love wear blue already. Running was something my husband, James, and I did together. James loved the challenge of doing something different, and I went along for the ride because I loved him and it kept me in-shape. When he was killed in 2013, I lost my interest in running; I no longer wanted to do it without my partner.
