OK, I did it. I registered for the full 26.2 mile Bataan Death March Marathon at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico 30 March 2008. I've been wanting to do this for several years now but health and then a long military deployment kept me from doing so the last three years.
Now I have no more reasons to delay this event. I feel the urge, the NEED to do this for all the veterans who have gone before me, and who have made many more sacrifices than I.
What an honor to be able to walk with some of the surviving veterans of the Bataan Death March. I've read on marathonguide.com that runners and walkers who completed this event leave this event teary-eyed. There is a good reason for that.
