September 14, 2013 @ 5:00PM at RunWell


Two cancer survivors, Ed Starrett and Ed Heigl, will share their stories of diagnosis, treatment and triumph!  They are avid cyclist and runners, who don't know the word "quit" or "can't."  Bring a friend and hear their inspiring stories! 


Ed Starrett - Ed was diagnosed with Stage IV non-hodgkins lymphoma. He went through six months of Chemo and tumor shrinking drugs. Miraculously, he was in remission for eight years. About two years ago, the cancer returned again. He had to go through much more aggressive chemotherapy. Upon finishing treatment, he decided to take up running and celebrated his 2nd remission by running the Mud Mountain 5k race in Edwardsville. Ed is also an avid cyclist and continues to maintain a very high level of fitness. He is also a strong advocate of diet and nutrition changes as a method of cancer prevention and is prepared to discuss his experience on this topic.



Ed Heigl - Ed H. is a graduate of St. Louis University.  He ran as an elite athlete and clocked close to a 4 minute mile and have run over 100 thousand miles in over 40 plus years of running. Approximately 16 months ago he was diagnosed with stage 4 rectal cancer that had metastasized to the liver with 3 tumors as large as baseballs and was given almost no hope of surviving. With feet, toes, fingers numb from the chemo treatments, he continues to log the miles with his chemo pump in tow!

The film documents the trials and tribulations of these athletes as they run 135 miles through Death Valley in July and explores the motivations behind this seemingly masochistic contest. A celebration of the perseverance of the human will beyond the limits of the human body.

Shane Perrin professional stand up paddleboarder and founder of SUP St. Louis.  Shane is currently working on a documentary of his amazing 340-mile paddle on a stand up paddleboard (SUP) down the Missouri River from Kansas City to St. Charles in October 2011. Shane competed in the 6th annual Missouri River 340 and became the first person to attempt, as well as, first to complete the race on an SUP. This historic achievement contributed greatly to his rise to fame in the stand up paddling community, and it propelled him to accomplish further incredible feats on an SUP.  Shane will show us his documentary and share his story with us!  Shane will begin training for a 1,000 mile race later this year!!  Come out and meet him!  


Follow his blog at http://shaneperrin.blogspot.com/


From Shane:  My passion is racing ultra distance races on a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) to show it can be done but also for the personal challenge. I love being on the water and teaching stand up to anyone interested. It is my sport. It is my love. It is my adventure.



Upcoming FREE community events include:

Shin Splint Seminar, Form & Gait Clinic, Core Strength Routine, and MORE!  Submit your suggestions for seminars to runwellcoaching@yahoo.com

RunWell has Merrell's!


M Connect Series - The connection, speed and glove like fit of Merrell Barefoot now with the added cushioning for all your running adventures!  Connect to your world!




RunWell has an entire corner of the store dedicated to nutrition!  We strive to provide products that are organic, vegan, and whole food!  Athletes need foods that can be readily converted into energy, foods that will help repair and rebuild muscle tissue, and restore glycogen levels, foods that will fortify vital organs, and not create excess waste that our bodies have to transport and store.   
If you're consuming foods that are overly processed, contain excess fat and calories, are over-cooked and lacking vital nutrients, you will feel sluggish during training and may not be able to complete the workout!
Help your body perform for you!  Shop our EatWell nutrition section!
