-I decided not to let the disease become an obstacle, on the contrary, I wanted to do things I could not do before I got sick! I had lost 9 kg, but I signed up for the Oslo half marathon, without any running experience of any kind, says Trond Stegarud.

After a lot of training, adversity and a lot in and out of hospital, he completed the race during the Oslo Marathon with a backpack full of medicine and food!

-My one-year anniversary was the Oslo Marathon (21 km). Next year there will be a marathon (42 km), Stegarud concludes satisfied.
