What I'm Thankful for... from Iraq.

Gosh, there's a surprise - the troops are thankful for the same things we are - family, friends, and that 5K run... well, maybe not that run so much.



Note to Good Idea Fairy Second Lieutenants: Just because "fun" and "run" happen to rhyme does *not* mean they are synonymous.

There is absolutely no reason on earth to call a five-mile dog-trot wearing a forty-pound ruck and sixty pounds of IBA a "Fun Run"...
You could always do a serious run of 42K instead :)

The Marine!Goth actually ran his first half marathon while in Iraq.  But not, I think, in gear.
