• RIP U.S.A distance runner Gabriele Grunewald
June 12, 2019
“From the very first day I was told I had cancer in 2009, I knew running would be a big part of my journey back to health. It has truly been my refuge; when everything else seems to be going wrong and the outcomes are far beyond my control, I can find perspective and hope on the run."
Ten years after her initial cancer diagnosis, the US distance runner died on Tuesday (11) at the age of 32. During the past 10 years, Grunewald won a national title, competed at two global championships, and recorded PBs of 4:01.48 for 1500m, 8:42.64 for 3000m and 15:19.01 for 5000m.
