It's only fitting in the "Year of the Tiger," (I'm a Tiger), that this year becomes the year to push past limits and comfort zones. When speaking the word hero, it doesn't always have to mean "Man who saves lives from burning building," but what the last few years has taught us is that, a hero can be whomever you want it to be.
So, in this inaugural year, I've decided to "Run for Heroes." I'm not raising money. I'm not savings lives, but for every step I take in this year's Marine Corp Marathon, I'll be doing in to honor your heroes.
I can't say I'll run every year, but from here on with Korevariance, we'll be doing some event where we'll honor your heroes.

Examples of Heroes
- A hero can be your friend, the single mom raising her kid while going to school and work full-time to give her daughter a better life.
- A hero can be someone fighting cancer that needs an extra prayer sent out for them.
- A hero could be someone who has passed who made an impact on your life.
- A hero can be your local police officer, who puts his/her life on the line every day.
MEET THE FOUNDER
Let me start by saying, "I'm not a runner." I picked up running last year as another way to push my physical and mental limits, and so far, I'm liking the results. Anyways, earlier this year when I ran in the 17.75K Race at Quantico, I saw hundreds of athletes with photos of family members and fallen heroes on their shirts, and I can tell you that was inspiring.
So in my bucket list attempt to run and finish a marathon, I'm running this not just for me, but for heroes, whomever they may be.
