Finished my first marathon in the weekend with my wife, and it would appear that I am still well, and that the VATS didn't diminish my lung capacity by much.

I always ran but the distances gradually got shorter as my age got older.
The cancer diagnosis, and a stage IV one at that, did change my perspective and I ran to run away from the cancer and my fears. Then I found I really liked running a lot more than I thought.
I was a lot more active in 2015 and 2016 in regards to both the board and exercise, and found that this year was devoted to work, study, moving (office) and more work. I did the marathon with my wife as it was a celebration of the almost 5 years but we never trained enough.
We have our eyes set on a few more, Boston, New York, Tokyo and Paris.
How much do you run?
