Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven

Salt Lake Valley, Utah
I'm a 74-year old runner, and I've been running for over 37 years, including four marathons, and have had only one injury due to running. That injury happened in 2007 and was due to not giving my body enough rest. I had reduced my mileage while I was increasing my LSD pace. Then I started increasing my distance but made too big of weekly increments and was injured. Because of my age, I have...

Patty B.

Granbury, Texas
I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...

I'm going to be 42 this year. I am a single mom of a 16 yr old daughter. I'm an IT professional and also a student hoping to graduate in May 2013. I lost 140lbs over the past 2 years or so. I like to jog and run in races. I've recently made the leap from 3.2 miles at a time to about 6 - 7 miles at a time. I love the long distance running. I plan on doing the mini marathon next May in...

Laurie P. Patient ExpertHealth Maven

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.

Allie

Ohio
I began running back in July 2008 when I first moved from Penn State to Ohio to start my doctoral program. I was under a lot of stress with school and felt like I was going slightly crazy at times. Running quickly became my escape and kept my sanity, but little did I know it would turn into an insanity on its own! My first race was the Labor of Love 5 Miler, and I was barely able to hold...

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...

Running the Windy City

Illinois
Hello, my name is Lindsay and I am a 20-something-year old living in Chicago working on my Masters of Public Health. My journey towards healthy living began my senior year in high school when I realized that despite being athletic and very active, my unhealthy eating habits were not only adding to my waistline but also making me feel pretty gross. With the support of my family, I cleaned up my...
