Fdip69: The 31st Marine Corps Marathon In this episode I have the honor of running a 26.2 mile marathon with the assistance and protection of the United States Marine Corps through the streets of Virginia and Washington DC.  It’s an amazing thing when you meet the people who guarantee your freedom to run across your country.  These are the soldiers who risk their lives so that my family and I can sleep peacefully at night, safe from harm.  God Bless the US Marines.
