Lisa and Sally #RunFor each other

At 25, Sally’s husband passed away from an aggressive form of cancer. Grief and depression left her incapacitated. Until she met Lisa. Until she met running.

"For me, running is definitely therapeutic."

This is the story of Sally and Lisa, two people who started just as co-workers, but later become friends, brought together by running.

"She's my friend, and I love her. And I love that she loves running," says Lisa.

Lisa encouraged Sally to start running -- literally just one mile at a time -- after Lisa lost her husband shortly after they were married, and quickly found herself paralyzed by depression. Over time, that mile became two miles, and then three, and then eventually, a sub-five hour marathon.

"I'm becoming more and more 'Sally the Runner,' rather than 'Sally the Widow.'"

"We run for each other. We run for friendship."
