Cari ran her first half marathon in 2005, and her first full marathon just one year later in 2006. Since then, she has been committed to training early nearly every morning, and to eating healthy to fuel her body through these workouts.
Despite her long-time commitment to her physical health, she was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer, at the end of 2018. Due to a radical hysterectomy to remove most of the tumor, followed by six months of chemotherapy, she was bedridden and unable to run. After being placed in remission in July of 2019, she immediately reached out to her running coach to slowly return to training. On Sunday February 9th, 2020, she ran her first half marathon since beating cancer.
