#383: Running after Breast Cancer

Sarah and special co-host Katie get up close and personal with four people dealing with breast cancer and its aftermath. The intimate conversation covers:
-the power of friends (running and otherwise) during treatment;
-how lessons learned through sports can carry over to dealing with chemotherapy;
-the surprising side effects of chemotherapy and radiation;
-what one woman vowed to do during her treatment (spoiler alert: run-streak); and,
-the importance of accepting help when it’s offered.
In the intro, Katie shares her breast cancer story—as well as deets about the Jonas Brothers concert she just attended with her oldest daughter! The first of the four guests comes onto the scene at 21:00. (And hear producer Alex Ward at 16:20!)

One response to “#383: Running after Breast Cancer

  1. Hey you awesome folks, I’m a BAMR/military spouse/and cancer survivor who was, by God’s grace, able to survive treatment in 2012 and run a half-marathon 12 days after my last chemo treatment. I so appreciated your podcast and interviews with runners dealing with breast cancer. You really covered the nitty gritty of the physical and emotional toll of cancer treatment and runner identity. Thank you for you podcast! It is my companion while stationed overseas for a few years. I am still running, and farther than I ever hoped or imagined. And I am working to inspire other military spouses to embrace the therapeutic value of running and connecting through running during the stresses that come with our lifestyle. I also, at my last assignment, was able to enjoy the fabulous PNW running community in Spokane, and hope to be back some day! Love and many happy miles!!
