“I was never a runner,” Mandie Graham said.
And so Mandie was a little surprised when she began running in May.
“I just started running,” she said. “I built up my stamina.”
While Mandie claims she never was a fast runner, she won first place Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Susan G. Koeman Race for the Cure 5K in Lexington.
Mandie was the first cancer survivor to cross the finish line at 26 minutes and 25 seconds.
“Are you kidding me?” Mandie asked when an official at the finish line told her the news.
