Action 180 - Honor Heroes (Mile 2).

I am dedicating each mile that I run in the Pasadena Marathon to another Marine Corps hero who has made the ultimate sacrifice, so that in my own small way, they may be honored, acknowledged, and remembered.

Action 180 - Honor Heroes (Mile 2). I will run mile two in honor of Cpl Conner Lowry. He is remembered as a proud Marine, confident in his ability to perform his duties and happy to serve his country. I will run as a tribute to a fallen Marine Corps Brother.


Marine Cpl Conner Thomas Lowry, age 24, U.S.M.C., 2nd BN, 11th Marines, died during combat operations in Kajaki District, Afghanistan on March 1, 2012.
