Alison Hadden

Alison is a marketing executive, TEDx speaker, and lifelong athlete living with Stage IV breast cancer. She fell in love with the trails when she lived in Marin County, CA and is excited to reconnect with them in her new home of Boulder, Colorado. When not trail running, you can find Alison adventuring all over the globe (as soon as it’s ok to travel again), snowboarding, hiking and playing with her dogs, Cooper and Bertie.

No Time To Waste

In August 2018, I got diagnosed with advanced breast cancer at a fit and seemingly healthy 38 years young. What followed was 15 months of treatment – 5 months of chemo, a mastectomy, 6 weeks of daily radiation and 6 months of oral chemo which wrapped at the end of December 2019.
