2012 Camp Pendleton Mud Run – 10K


This year’s MARSOC World Famous Mud Run was outstanding! It was plenty muddy and highly motivating!

If you didn’t get a chance to make it, be sure to log on to active.com on January 1st to register for next year’s races since they usually sell out in one day.

Corps Values: Honor, Courage and Commitment

Marine Corps Values,  Honor, Courage and Commitment

As a highly motivated United States Marine – everyday I strive to uphold the Corps Values:  Honor, Courage and Commitment – that were instilled in me when I became a Marine, when I earned the title.  These three (3) Corps Values make up the bedrock of the character of each individual Marine and of who I am as a Marine.  They are the foundation of my Corps.  Handed down from generation to generation they have made the United States Marine Corps the most respected and revered fighting force on the planet!

  Honor requires each Marine to exemplify the ultimate standard in ethical and moral conduct.  Honor is many things; honor requires many things.  A U.S. Marine must never lie, never cheat, never steal, but that is not enough.  Much more is required.  Each Marine must cling to an uncompromising code of personal integrity, accountable for his actions and holding others accountable for theirs.  And, above all, honor mandates that a Marine never sully the reputation of his Corps.

Courage:  Simply stated, courage is honor in action — and more.  Courage is moral strength, the will to heed the inner voice of conscience, the will to do what is right regardless of the conduct of others.  It is mental discipline, an adherence to a higher standard.  Courage means willingness to take a stand for what is right in spite of adverse consequences.  This courage, throughout the history of the Corps, has sustained Marines during the chaos, perils, and hardships of combat.

Commitment:  Total dedication to Corps and Country.  Gung-ho Marine teamwork.  All for one, one for all.  By whatever name or cliché, commitment is a combination of (1) selfless determination and (2) a relentless dedication to excellence.  Marines never give up, never give in, never willingly accept second best.  Excellence is always the goal.  And, when their active duty days are over, Marines remain reserve Marines, retired Marines, or Marine veterans.  There is no such thing as an ex-Marine or former-Marine.  Once a Marine, always a Marine.  Commitment never dies.

Join "Team OORAH!" | 2012 Spartan Sprint in Malibu, CA

When Spartan Race first announced that the 2012 Spartan Sprint in Malibu, CA would be on Nov. 10th (which also happens to be the Marine Corps Birthday!) I immediately thought “OORAH!” what better way to celebrate our Corps’ 237th Birthday!

Spartan Race has since changed the date of the race from Nov. 10th to Dec. 1st but our goal remains the same – to get off the couch, push ourselves outside of our comfort zones, and have some fun conquering the 2012 Spartan Sprint in Malibu, CA with a team of 237 Spartans, Marines & Civilians in honor of the United States Marine Corps 237th Birthday!  Semper Fi!
