Each run is a gift
Posted on August 18 2017
“At age 49, I was a 215-pound, weightlifting gym rat. In the summer of 2010, my wife told me that for her birthday in December, she wanted to run a half marathon. I hadn’t the foggiest idea what I was doing, but I talked her into letting me train her. That December, we ran and finished our first race. Two months later, I found out that also crossing the finish line with us was a Stage IV T3 sized tumor directly behind my Adam’s apple. Treatment started soon after. Between March and May, I lost my ability to drive due to meds, my voice due to radiation and over 40 pounds. I was declared cancer free in October and will celebrate six years this fall. I don’t lift as much as I used to, but I run more than I could have ever imagined. Each run, no matter how short or long, is a gift”- HOKA fan Christopher Nolan
