Despite urgings from friends and family to skip the prestigious race, at mid-afternoon Nolan was on pace to finish the 26.2 miles in 6 hours, 46 minutes.

She planned to walk about 75 percent of the way, running only the downhill stretches.

Nolan, who lives in the Syracuse suburb of Camillus, said she had clearance from her doctor and had spoken with marathon officials, who allowed her in the race.

Image: Making Babies the Hard Way: Living with Infertility and Treatment, by Caroline Gallup. Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Pub; 1 edition (May 15, 2007)Making Babies the Hard Way: Living with Infertility and Treatment
by Caroline Gallup

-- A frank account of one couple's discovery that they cannot have children of their own, and their ensuing struggle through four years of fertility treatment.

One in six couples worldwide seek assistance to conceive and 80 per cent of couples undergoing fertility treatment are currently unsuccessful.

Writing with humour and honesty, Caroline Gallup describes the social, emotional, spiritual and physical impact of infertility on her and her husband, Bruce, including feelings of bereavement for the absent child, the unavoidable sense of inadequacy and the day-to-day difficulties of financial pressure.

As well as telling her own moving story, she also offers information and guidance for others who are infertile, or who are considering or undergoing treatment.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
