Naperville, Ilinois’ Monarch Landing Resident Wins First Place in 5K Run
Date:7/23/2014

(PRWEB) July 23, 2014

On July 4th, at the age of 70, Kitty Ganzel, a resident of Monarch Landing in Naperville, Illinois, took a first place prize in her age group at the Firecracker 5K in Warrenville.

Kitty is a self-professed late-bloomer. She waited until she was in her forties before becoming an ordained minister and a newlywed. When she was 65, she decided to start running. Not one to do anything halfway, she launched her running career by training for a 5K.

For Kitty, the decision to begin running started five years ago at the request of her then six-year old grandson who she visits every winter in Georgia. He was looking for a partner for a school 5K fundraiser. “My daughter wasn’t interested and his father wasn’t able to do it,” Kitty said. “I told him, ‘here’s the deal. Grandma will go home and train and come back and run it with you next year.’ I then joined Weight Watchers and signed up for Dick Pond’s Walk-to-Run Program,” Kitty said. “I lost 50 pounds and found out that I liked running, and have continued to do so.” She said that during their first year, they were about two and a half miles out and her grandson was exhausted. “I told him that it was okay not to finish and that I was so proud of him. I ran ahead and a few second later he went zooming by me shouting, ‘not today grandma!’ He crossed the finish line right in front of me…he was all arms and legs.” Kitty has repeated the 5K fundraiser every year since, even though her grandson no longer does.

She also started competing in 10K’s and last year completed her first half-marathon. She’s gradually taken on longer races she said, because she likes the extra challenge and treasures the encouragement from her children who are runners. Her husband Joe, who is her most avid supporter, rides his bike behind her during training runs, cheering her on.

When Kitty moved to Monarch Landing earlier this summer, she discovered she could
