Going the extra mile.
This is Katie Cooke — a 20-year-old competitive runner from Dublin, Ireland.
Going the extra mile.
Despite having an aggressive form of epilepsy, in which she experiences up to 14 seizures a day, she only stays down for so long.

More often than not, you'll find Katie back up and running right after having seizure.

Katie typically trains alone during the week, though, she's a got a great running partner by her side when she runs official races: her neurologist, Dr. Colin Doherty.

Dr. Doherty plays two roles during Katie's races: the first, being her doctor; the second, being her running buddy. So, if Katie happens to have a seizure while she's running, he makes sure no one carts her off the course, ensures she and the people around her are OK, and he helps her get right back on track in a healthy state of mind.
