I even had to move ,y sitting spot as I,was getting angry watching the runners in my neighborhood. Great read and inspiring from someone that is,inspired

This is such a powerful story. Thank you for writing it. And bravo for writing about a woman-specific issue. Writers are intimidated or criticized for writing about different identities and issues that they can't personally experience, especially regarding race and gender. But you writing this story helps it reach a wider audience, and you did it with sensitivity and curiosity. I recently wrote abut a runner cancer survivor, and it moved me to do more to personally try to prevent cancer through lifestyle and nutrition, and to support cancer fundraisers. Like Louise, the woman I wrote about blew me away with her resiliency and strength to run after so much treatment and surgeries. Here it is if you're interested. Keep up the good storytelling! https://www.trailrunnermag.com/people/live-through-this/
