Welcome to Pink Ribbon Runner
I was tired of being obese. I didn’t want to feel like a stuffed potato, bloated inside my own clothes, anymore. Deep bone pains vibrated to my very core. Sometimes back pain left me immobilized, unable to get out of bed without strong medications. I felt guilty eating and would binge at night. I was physically, mentally and emotionally drained. I blamed my cancer on my unhealthy lifestyle. Desperate for change, I wanted a healthier & happier life.
Time to make a change!
My hope is that the Pink Ribbon Runner Blog will inspire you and help change your life. You can do this too!
The Blog is packed full of information to get you on the right path to a healthy lifestyle. While the focus is to help cancer survivors, there is something for every adult person here. Anyone wanting to repair body, mind and spirit will benefit from reading the Blog.

The 2019 Marathon Challenge
This year marks my 5th year of cancer survivorship. To celebrate and challenge myself, I will run my first marathon. On October 6, 2019, I will run the 26.2 miles with my friends. Anita and Stephanie will be training with me to also run their first marathon.
Follow our honest, inspiring, emotional and funny journey to train and run the Twin Cities Metronics Marathon.
Help Fund & Find a Cure
This year also marks 5 years of running for me. My first race was 3 miles in the CIBC Run for the Cure to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. My first marathon is on the same day as Run for the Cure this year. So, instead of running 3 miles in my hometown, I will run 26.2 miles in Minneapolis, MN.
Please consider supporting me by donating to this very worthy cause. Thank you!
Together we can help make
breast cancer beatable!

A Little About Me
My name is Patricia Prince. I am the founder and primary author here at Pink Ribbon Runner.
I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2013. I vowed that I would do everything in my power to battle this disease.
After my treatments, I restructured my life. I lost 90 pounds, started running and eating better. I found happiness again.
I started this website to share what I have learned, both by avidly reading and by doing. I hope you find inspiration in my story and articles.
Life is so much better when we feel well!
