Ask anyone who has set a goal and trained for an endurance race, like the Disney Princess Half Marathon: achieve that goal, and you live on the inspiration, the knowledge that you did it, for some time after. But the victory of running and finishing the race was even more poignant for reality TV stars Jenna Morasca and Ethan Zohn of “Survivor” fame, because Zohn is also a cancer survivor.
While battling a rare form of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last year, Zohn credited the drive to get back to sports with the motivation he needed to get through treatments. “What gave me the strength to get through my darkest moments was knowing that I’d…be able to run again,” he said during a pre-event interview.
The half marathon was Morasca’s first, and the two completed the event in just over two hours.
