TurkeyTrot-Mfoto-Full2PBProminently displaying her CCAC colors, Dari Whitehouse has been picked as a profiled finisher of the 2011 Marine Corps Marathon. Dari finished the 2011 MCM in 3:54:48 in October, qualifying for Boston and marking the completion of her fourth round of cancer therapy. In addition to running Boston and challenging Bill Dalrymple and Jane Lovelette in the Grand Prix, Dari plans on running a 50K and returning to MCM. “If I’ve learned anything over the last two years or so it’s that I’m much stronger than I thought I was and limitations are usually self-imposed and are really great opportunities for growth,” she says.
