Yet, Marcom drew on the strength from the children she works with daily — and from running — to overcome and show that the doesn't crack under pressure. Marcom ran the 2015 OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon on Saturday, May 2 and dedicated the race to her son and all the children that provide her the strength to continue her journey.
