Wow, Maria, that time is fantastic (especially under those conditions). So inspiring!
Hope you are feeling well and I will look for your posts in the other sections as well.
Marion: Your son sounds amazing and I can’t wait to hear how he does in his upcoming races.

Mmm Marion, that Apple didn’t fall far from the tree! Best of luck to him!August 7, 2012 at 7:47 am #61005
Maria…Many lives ago I also competed in Marathons; hence I am in awe of your time achieved. It runs a bit in my family as my oldest son is competing in the World Triathlon Championship, New Zealand, in October. Next weekend (I think it is next weekend) he is competing in the Nationals in Vermont. Like you, he is an energetic bundle.
More power to you,

Maria. Thanks for updating us! I consider it good news that you ran that distance!!! I would consider it good news without cc. You are truly an inspiration. Please keep us posted. I will check the other site for recent news. If anyone doubts the inspiration of messages, I can give testimony that you have inspired me during this up and downhill time. I went back purposely to look for you because I remembered the words of one of your posts.
Thinking of you and hoping you are finding the right treatment to set you on the path to healing

Marion, you are so welcome . I agree, it is incredible. I hardly believe it myself… But I DO believe that the limits are only in our heads. Everything IS possible.
A big hug!!!August 6, 2012 at 6:06 pm #61001
Maria….sorry for chiming in, but I must comment on the incredible time of 4.27 hours. And, that in the most adverse weather conditions; you are fantastic. Congratulations.

Kathy and Gerry,
I ran my marathon, in a way I never would have imagined!
But as three days before I got the news that my tumors had started growing again and I’m back on chemo I didn’t post it in this section but in General discussions.
The rained poured down constantly, it was +4 C and wind 10-18 m/s…. Even here in Sweden this is extremely rare in June!! But I was happy all the way, just by being able to start! I’m totally overwhelmed that I could do it in 4.27 h.
I must have very powerful angels around me!

Maria. I’ve been waiting to hear if you ran the next race you were training for? You have been such an inspiration with your attitude and determination in spite of all the hard times. Hope you are keeping on the upward path!

Love that quote Lainy!!
btw Maria…I have to say that when I read “completed my second Gothenburg halfmarathon” I thought … what the heck kinda treatment is that??

Maria, I saw this and it reminded me of you!
To dream anything you want to dream, that is the beauty of
the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is
the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your
limits, that is the courage to succeed.
