I sincerely hope that she gets through this and fights like she ran... She has honestly always been an inspiration to me.

What a shame. Greta is one of the greats not only of women's running but running period.

I used to have this quote in my signature:

"I'm never going to run this again" - Grete Waitz after winning her first of nine New York City Marathons.
