In 2001, at 52 years old, Janette Murray-Wakelin was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was told that she only had six months to live or up to a year if she undergoes conventional chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Fast forward to 2013, Janette, together with her husband Alan, ran 366 marathons covering 15,782 kilometers across Australia. Running entirely on raw vegan food, they completed the 42.195-kilometer marathon distance every single day for one year. And on the 8th of April 2018, Janette will be running the Paris International Marathon. It will be the 500th marathon she will run in one day since she started taking on the diagnosis as a challenge. In this interview, we get a glimpse into her awe-inspiring story and the life choices she made on the road to healing and recovery.
