Sister Marion Irvine
It was on Memorial Day 1978that Sister marion Irvine started running. She recognized that she had a lot of pent-up energy that wasn't being expended. A niece suggested that she try jogging. As first, she thought it was a crazy idea, but thenshe invested in some tennis shoes and shorts and started out by walking stretches in the sun and running in the shade. She found she felt better immediately.
