“Cancer can stop you from doing a lot of things. I’m well aware of that. But I’m more interested in what cancer can’t stop me from doing. Here’s to finding out.” – Gabe Grunewald

Introducing tough. Actually, when it comes to Gabe Grunewald, tough doesn’t even begin to describe her.  She’s a middle distance professional runner, now 32 years old. She was first diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC), a rare cancer known primarily for recurring. Since then, she has fought back cancer four times and through it all, maintained her running career …even after extended breaks for treatment. Most recently, she returned after 14 months of away to complete the Ed Murphey Mile in Memphis last August. Her time: 4:27.94 (4:01.48).
