    It’s hard to believe I’ve been riunnng for over 30 years and having just turned 67 a few days ago, I hope that I can still keep on riunnng for many years to come. Reason #1:Fifteen years ago, I was diagnosed with 2 cancers & I kept on riunnng through all my treatments. I HAVE to keep on riunnng to prevent the risk of any recurrence, so I need all the help I can get to stay injury-free. I have done 11 half marathons since turning 60. Reason #2: I am an instructor in a therapeutic exercise program for breast cancer patients at a local teaching hospital & my participants tell me that I inspire them with my love of riunnng. I want to continue to inspire these women recovering from such a devastating disease to make exercise a lifelong commitment.
