Military Women Sweep Top Spots at Marine Corps Marathon

Stars & Stripes reports that “military women swept the top three spots in the female division of the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, while the male winner of the race ran to spotlight two major issues facing the military today.”

“Girma Bedada, 33, was first to finish the men’s race with a time of 2:21:32 as part of Team I Run 4 God (IR4G) and Team McGraw. Team IR4G, coached by a retired Army lieutenant colonel, was campaigning this year to bring awareness to military sexual trauma. Team McGraw, highlighting post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries, honors the late Tug McGraw, a major league baseball pitcher and former Marine.”
