Australia loses a running legend

December 8, 2008

kerryn1Australia has lost one if its most legendary running legends – Kerryn McCann, who has succumbed to cancer at the young age of 41.  I have a poster of her on my office door showing her crossing the line at the 2006 Commonwealth Games triumphant after an emphatic victory thanks to her courageous attitude towards running.

She no doubt applied this tenacity to her fight with cancer but unfortunately she has lost her battle and leaves behind a husband and three children.  Even before her passing, she has been widely recognised as being a warm and generous person who touched many.  She set an example for us in running and in life.  Long may her memory inspire others, especially women, to achieve all they can whilst they can.
