Despite cancellation of Pittsburgh Marathon, three friends plan overnight marathon of their own
For Gleason, this feeling is ten-fold. He nearly had running ripped away from him in 2016, when he had to have a knee replacement. Most doctors he met with told him he wouldn’t be able to run after his surgery. One, though, Dr. Richard Berger in Chicago, said he could replace Gleason’s knee and he’d be able to run as long as he wants afterward.
Sure enough, that’s the case. Still, in the time that Gleason waited for his surgery and then did physical therapy, he felt what it was like to be without running.
