10 weeks out and running

My husband is 10 weeks since his last treatment and he just ran his 22 (in a row) marine corps marathon in DC last Sunday!!! His time was better than last year. (he is not a very fast runner) I think it is because he lost 50 pounds. We got out of there before Sandy stranded us!! Those of you wondering about exercising afterwards, you can do it!

is quite an accomplishment. The rest of us mere mortals cant run marathons on our best days, lol. But you are right, recovery proceeds at a certain pace, but resuming ( or starting) an exercise program sure helps. Tell him we r proud of him.

I will tell my husband because he belonged to a gym his entire adult life but now this has taken that away. I will tell him it is only temporary ...he will work out again. Good luck to you and your husband.

Hi newfymom,

Wow, I am impressed at 10 weeks out I still felt breakable. I think I’ll skip over marathons, but take a page from his book on exercise.

Great job, keep moving forward!
