Dream big. Set ambitious goals. Attain unusual achievements. At the age of 68, while still recovering from his second knee injury, Dr. Zeev Gilkis decided to give himself an unusual present for his 70th birthday. He dreamed of running a full Marathon, and completing the seventh decade of his life seemed to him the ideal timing to do so. Perhaps this ambitious goal wouldn't have been so unusual, had he been a very physically active person in his younger years. But Zeev is a cancer survivor who began his 'career' in sports relatively late, in his mid-sixties. As two years is a long time, he set a milestone for his 69th birthday: to go mid-way - running a half marathon. Along with his plans and dreams he kept a diary where he recorded the ups and downs, practical tips and original thoughts that crossed his mind in this long, challenging journey.
