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.

Well I started running in March of 2007 because one of my daughters asked if I would like to run a 5K race with her in Hopkiton Mass.in June. Hay I'm in shape I ride a bike to work this would be easy so I said sure. Well I did my first run it was 1 mile and I thought I was going to die I could not suck in enough air. So I started to read up on running so the next run was more run,walk,run,walk...
