Dr. Justin Grunewald works at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in the heart of Minneapolis treating patients during their hospital stays. He works nights for seven to 10 days in a row, then he'll get about two weeks off. When Cindra caught up with Justin, he was in Colorado ready to go on a RV trip, running, camping and adventuring in the woods.
On Episode #14 on the High Performance Mindset back in 2015, Cindra interviewed Justin’s wife, Gabe Grunewald. The fearless middle distance runner who was going after her dreams to make an Olympic team despite cancer. Gabe’s life was cut short at just 32 last year, but she still managed to make a huge impact on the running community and beyond. While battling a rare form of cancer and competing as one of the best middle-distance runners in the country, she inspired countless people to live bravely.
For over 10 years, she fought adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer of the salivary glands, which she was diagnosed with as a fifth-year senior running for the University of Minnesota. Despite the diagnosis, she went on to become an All-American in the 1500 meters, and after that, a professional runner who almost made the 2012 Olympic team.
In this podcast, Justin and Cindra talk:
· Gabe’s life physiology and how we can each learn to live bravely
· How their foundation “Brave Like Gabe” started
· How Gabe was able to turn a difficulty into an opportunity
· Their “chance” encounter in Central Park with Chip Gaines that changed their world
· An inside look at the mindset of an elite athlete
