the runway: all you.

October 28, 2013

all you,” said the marine as he strongly but gingerly offered me a paper cup of water in the palm of his hand.  like a peace offering, the lines of marines manning miles of water stations gave us the gift to keep going.  as an american i put my faith and confidence in our armed forces.  but yesterday, somewhere between mile 15 and 16, between the washington monument and the capitol, between one foot and the other, that marine put his faith and confidence in me.  i grabbed that paper cup, downed the water and carried on.  because that’s what a marine would do but yesterday it was all me.
