Catalina Marathon #51 is Molli Serrano INSPIRED!

0
It is with great emotion and deep passion that I share with you Molli Serrano’s story of strength and will. Molli has pushed herself beyond limits once thought impossible. Molli is married and she is a beautiful young mother of two precious twins. I learned about her story last year and was inspired beyond belief and thought to myself, this is the strongest person I haver ever seen. Molli won the battle of pancreatic cancer back in 2011, and if that was not enough, she also was also training for an IRONMAN at the same time. While going through chemo she would ride long miles on her bike and dealt with numerous hours of training each week. Personal drive and determination is an understatement. She would blow her doctor away with her progress. She was also the recipient of the Kona Inspired award, competed in the World Championship IRONMAN in Kona and had an outstanding race. Now Molli is on her way to beating pancreatic cancer again. I have had the pleasure of virtually meeting “Molli’s Tribe” and received several donations in honor of her. What a loving group of family and friends Molli has been blessed with. I have now officially become part of her tribe. It is with great honor that I am prepared to sweat for 26.2 miles up a mountainous journey. I know Molli would much rather be running with me, so we must keep the faith, because it can happen and I am holding her to that. Her good friend told me she channels her “inner Molli” I love that, and tomorrow I will do the same Please everyone send your healing powers and prayers her way, it will work miracles.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Molli in Kona 2012, any chance you have her contact information that you could pass along. I would love to get back in touch with her. Thanks.
