Doing the Run for the Honey after double lung transplant

If you have been following any of the MAGP races, you will recognize the name Juniper Christgau. She is one of the 6 runners that have a perfect record of competing in every MAGP race to date (10 races).  In the past year, Juniper's father had a double lung transplant and decided to participate in the Run for the Honey with his daughter.  It is hard to imagine exercising after having a double lung transplant. Yet Kevin Quigley (Juniper's father) managed to cover the hilly terrain.  The Monadnock Ledger noticed and wrote a nice article about his story:   Way to go, Kevin!
