Bataan Memorial Death March: Mission Accomplished
I’m back at the corporate overlords’ desk and feeling many emotions about our Bataan Memorial Death March adventures. I have lots of stories and “lessons learned” to share, but for today, we’ll just have to make do with a few photos.
Thank you to everyone who posted comments, followed us on Twitter, donated to the Wounded Warrior fund, marched with us in spirit, and went on your own hikes to march in solidarity with us. We felt your support, and it kept us putting one foot in front of the other.
Special hugs of thanks and high fives to the members of Team Relentless. We’re a good crew.

Mile 26. Just .2 miles to the end. We were tired and sore; that last .2 took us about 6 minutes.
No photos from the finish line – we were too overwhelmed. One team member reported to the medics, and a few of us bolted to the restrooms. Another few just plopped down on the ground.
