I ran my very first 100 mile race in Leadville 2010. I ran this race in order to create closure with my run-in with breast cancer. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and in 2009. I am now 52 years old and have been creating a new challenge for myself each year since my breast cancer recovery.
