    I've done a lot of things I never thought possible seeing as I couldn't run around the block in 1995:
    1. qualifying for boston on my second marathon back in 1996 and going back for my fourth in 2018
    2. running 100 miles
    3. running 52 marathons in 52 weeks when I turned 52
    4. doing an Ironman at the age of 40 and now at the age of 57 going to do my fourth

    one thing I would love to do is a pull-up....I keep working on it at the gym :)

    That's beast mode! :D

    Okay, this isn't much compared to some (which are amazing, well done people) but it's a biggie for me - I have today completed Week 1 of C25K.

    This is huge for me because I don't run (well, I sort of do now), I've never run, I used to avoid running at school.

    But even better, my 13 yo son is running with me :)

    We can't wait to start Week 2!

    You do run now!

    Great getting your son involved as well :)

    Finishing a marathon after chemotherapy. My oncologist said I could not run again after the chemo. It took a year and a half to train for it, but was worth it at the finish line!

    That is amazing, well done!

    As a chemo veteran myself, I understand the kind of determination that will have taken. Much respect to you for finding that in yourself.

    Ditto. Well done!
