After several COVID years, March for the Fallen (#MFTF) is back in full swing this year.

#getafterit

We will be training in Spain. Pat, Brandon, and I are hitting a 35-mile run through the Pyrenees mountains (in Spain) via the Peades dera Aigua. (Thanks to Pat for the motivation!)

The event is a preparatory opportunity for March for the Fallen and we will be reflecting on the fallen and the sacrifices of Gold Star families. (Details on the event are forthcoming). Sign up for MFTF now — we have slots for up to 60 this year.

We will have dog tags in tow. Oohrah!
