On 11 July 2014, I announced to my YouTube Followers: "Tony Eason will be participating in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C to honor Master Gunnery Sgt. Ralph Anthony Eason for his 26 years of military service in the U.S. Marine Corps."
On 26 October 2014 as I proceeded to mile 21 of the Marine Corps Marathon, I realized, "I had been humbled."
I had never experienced participating in an athletic event with a prior injury.
I had never experienced being an athlete in "the back of the pack."
I had never felt so much pain.
I had developed a new understanding of what "the slow people" experience during their 26.2 mile experience.
Yet, I GOT THAT MEDAL!
And, I had the most EPIC & EMPOWERING 7:15 hours of my life.
Therefore, on 16 October 2015, I will challenge my fear of possible failure and STEP AGAIN UP TO THE PLATE [for the 3rd Time] by participating in the TCS Amsterdam Marathon 2016!
Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, i LOOK FORWARD TO BEING GRACED BY YOUR PRESENCE!
