Salt Lake Valley, Utah

Missoula, Montana
I am an active 44 year old from Missoula Montana. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 months ago and spent the winter recovering from bilateral mastectomy/oophorectomy surgeries and chemotherapy. I was able to continue running (albeit fewer miles) during chemo. I started doing yoga during chemo for the relaxation and conditioning benefits.

I’ve been a runner for as long as I can remember. Even in Kindergarten, I remember challenging anyone who was up for it to race me in the school yard during recess and proudly styled myself “The Third Fastest Girl in School” (I did allow that my friends Jana and Wendy were faster.) Our PE teachers did a running unit every January that pretty much consisted of having us...
