“Have to tell you about something that touched my heart this morning at the mud run. I was sort of nervous since it was the first one Pete and Sara did. I got a knot in my stomach when I heard the mud pit was 5 ft. Sara’s height. A girl around Sara’s age and height walked in and looked like she had already given it her all. One Marine in the pit stopped his usual forceful yelling, went to her and asked if she was ok. About in tears, she shook her head, no. He took her by the arm and said nothing bad is going to happen to you. I’m here. I’ve got you. He gently repeated this as he led her to the finish line just beyond the pit. I felt better. I knew these guys, although tough, wouldn’t let any harm come to my baby.” ~Beth
