My name is Sherry Keating. This blog was started to share my experience becoming a marathoner. It’s named after my beloved grandmother, Carole, who we lost to lung cancer. 

I completed the Chicago Marathon and many other races to raise money for several nonprofits dedicated to ending lung cancer.

Since the marathon, I’ve continued to race and write about my running, trekking, hiking, eating, and traveling experiences. 

In 2019, among other races, I ran a half marathon in Antarctica.

While training for the race, I injured my achilles and have since been struggling to get healthy and back to running.

In early June, I went plant-based in an attempt to heal myself. This is my journey.
