    Default Bataan Death March

    I had the opportunity to run in the 24th Annual Bataan Memorial Death March this past weekend at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. It was a really humbling experience, especially being my first Marathon ever attempted and/or completed. I've known about the event for quite some time but I never really knew how big a crowd it drew. This year there were 5,800 participants from 47 U.S. states and 7 foreign countries (Germany, U.K., Mali, Canada, at least those were the only ones I saw). There were also people from all over the U.S., Missouri, Washington, Virginia, you name it. Has anyone else done the march? What have been your experiences?
