One of the country’s top middle-distance runners has died at her home in Minneapolis after inspiring many with a long and public fight against cancer. Gabriele Grunewald was 32. She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in the saliva glands in 2009 while running for the University of Minnesota. Following surgery and radiation therapy, Grunewald went on to finish second in the 1,500 meters at the 2010 NCAA championships. She was the U.S. indoor 3,000 champion in 2014.
