Supported and Loved Runner Story


Patrick Cook

Hi! I just want to say thank you all for letting me run with you fine folk! Next week [October 31, 2021] will be my first race back since being diagnosed with lymphoma (blood cancer) in June 2020 and officially in remission on January 2021.

Jumping straight out of chemo to training was tough. I had my doubts. But, joining KARC in May really helped me. I’m not much of a group person, but me getting out of my solo element and learning from you guys truly helped me and inspired me to keep moving!

Next week I plan on PRing my half. [Official Time 1:39:40, a PR]


Thanks again!
