Iram J Leon – Running to live

Iram’s charm and grace goes before him, wherever he goes. A doting father, an incredible runner, he’s like most endurance runners, albeit one of the most gentle, softly spoken ┬ámen you could ever wish to meet.

His smile belies the fact that he has battled brain cancer for some time, but finds a release in running. Running is his therapy.

Cookie from Team SISU caught up with the Texan recently and discussed what it means to teach his young daughter how to run like her dad and to constantly push against the demons that would try to drag him down.
