“ I ran the 15K with my wife and her mother. It was an extraordinarily well organized run and an absolute delight to run. While the cool weather helped balance the hills, I'm not sure what it will take to balance the fact that my 59-year-old mother-in-law beat me in the race.”

community ::: Heart Mini Marathon
Each year the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Team fields a team of runners and walkers for the Heart Mini-Marathon, which benefits the American Heart Association. The 2005 Mini-Marathon – the 28 th annual and one of Cincinnati’s oldest and most beloved running events – featured a 15K mini-marathon, a 5K run, a 5K/10K walk, and a 2K walk/run for kids. Rosie Miller, RN, coordinated the team of 19 runners and walkers who represented the Stroke Team in the 2005 event.
