Running On Air

Posted by Mary Kitlowski on Nov 3, 2017 10:22:01 AM

We’ve all heard about how important exercise is and how sitting is the new smoking. Most of us step out our doors to go for a run or a hike or go to the gym for our workouts. What about those for whom exercise is not so easy?

My sister and I both have a rare lung disease called Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD). In July of 2013 our doctor prescribed us both supplemental oxygen. My sister needed it full time. I only needed it for exertion, when I was working out.

Remember Why You Started

Mary Hill is the type of person who can make something happen. When given a choice of life or death, you’d better believe she’s going to make life happen.

When she was in high school, Mary participated in numerous school activities including basketball, volleyball and track—so it’s no surprise that she was in better physical shape than most of her peers.

In her twenties, Mary found the man of her dreams and got married. After their wedding, Mary let go of healthy eating habits and exercise routines since she no longer had to worry about fitting into “the dress.”

Hobby + Passion + Creativity = Miles of Memories

My husband, Jim, has always been active in swimming and biking and had been encouraging (bugging) me for years to take up a sport we could do together.

Letting Go of a Dream...

Posted by Kara Goucher on Sep 17, 2013 1:00:00 PM

2013 has not been the year that I thought it would be for my running. For the past few months I have been looking forward to running the ING New York City Marathon as a perfect way to cap off a difficult year and to show the world what I am still capable of doing. Unfortunately, it just is not in the cards for this year. Letting go of my dream of running New York this year has been very difficult for me, but it was a decision I had to make.

A New Starting Line

Posted by Adam Goucher on Nov 9, 2011 1:00:00 PM

“I am not somebody who just likes to run. I am a runner. This is the difference between a pastime and a passion. I like to play golf, but I am not a golfer. I like to cook, but I am not a chef. I don’t just like to run. I am a runner. It is a passion. It is part of who I am and is woven into the fabric of my personality, character, and psyche.” – Adam Goucher from “Running the Edge”
