I will be running the 41st Marine Corps Marathon on October 30th, 2016 in honor of Cpl. Conner T. Lowry.

Cpl. Conner T. Lowry, an ammunition technician chief and fire team leader with Golf Battery, 2nd Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment Golf Battery, was KIA on March 1st, 2012, in Kajaki, AfghanistanHe was 24 years old.

Conner Lowry was the beloved son of dear family friends in Beverly, Chicago.  Conner always said “Live Life Large”.  Proof of his motto is in his scores of friends, most of whom he described as “his best friends.”  He loved as hard as he was loved.  His adventurous spirit took him across the country, and eventually across the world as a Marine.  And for every adventure is a T-Shirt, a photograph, and most importantly, a story.  Lowry stories are always rich in detail, humor, and filled with a little mischief.   Conner was tall, handsome, funny, playful, and giving.  His heart was open to anyone in need, whether it was a friend who needed a ride or a fellow soldier who needed safety.  The “Live Life Large” wristband I still wear on my wrist serves as a constant reminder of his service and sacrifice. 

It is this spirit that the Conner T. Lowry Memorial Fund
hopes to nurture for future generations for educational scholarships and to assist veterans and their families in need.

It is an honor to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon and I thank you for your contributions!

Can't believe I am 26 days and 26 miles away from completing the 41st MCM! Not to worry - I have been training my butt off! Check out these pictures from some recent races I participated in.

Thank you all for the extremely generous donations. Modie and I just spoke on the phone, and she cannot express how much all of this means to her, and to the cause. Thank you, thank you.

Stay tuned for another update as we get closer to race day!
