Quote Of The Day
“My first cancer diagnosis [at age 22] really shook me and scared me in a powerful way. In some ways I struggled but after getting through the hard stuff like surgery and radiation treatment, I was just really grateful for my health and I wanted to channel that in my running. Getting back to the track motivated me to stay positive and future-focused during my recovery, which was so important for me. At first I was just happy to be back running and training with my teammates, but once I got out there competing again it really opened up my eyes to the possibility that I could be faster and achieve more (on the track) than I ever thought was possible before cancer.”
“Instead of being afraid of failure, I was thinking, Why not me? It changed the way I viewed myself and my opportunities, and my first season of racing after cancer opened the door to professional running – something that was nothing but a pipe dream prior to that year.”
