Ran 5, 10K's and half marathons and was training for a marathon when she was diagnosed. The fatigue from Chemo ended her running. She tried to do a 10 K trail run about 7 months after her resection and between rounds of FolFox plus Avastin, but the trails were much more brutal than she thought they would be and she had to pull the plug at the 5K mark. After that she never ran again. I think this was probably the lowest part of her life prior to the end. Still; she remained active just no longer a runner. Ran and trained her dogs, rode her horse and judged field trial events to within a few of weeks of her passing.
GrouseMan, I wish I had meet your wife. It sounds as she was a wonderful person! Every time you have talked about her I have wanted to say that. Finally I said it now! Warm hugs & Thank you for staying here on ColonClub, helping us ’on the journey’ (as CRguy says).
