“August 2010, I injured three (spinal) discs while complete a 7-mile training run. My (oxygen) tank has slipped down on my back and kept pounding away at the disc,” she recalled. Once again, her chiropractor adjusted her and by the next week after the back injury, she was able to at least walk a 5K she’d entered. A week after that, she actually ran a 5K.

In September 2010, she completed her first half-marathon.

Meanwhile, a grandmother has been training for 5ks and further, all while running with a ten pound oxygen tank on her back. Yup, she's probably tougher than most of us.
