Sophie Pelletier-Roy is a 40-year-old mother of four, ages 3 to 14. She looks like a runner – small, thin and muscular – but she did not even start running long-distances until she was 39. β€œShe was on fire last year,” said her partner. Sophie discovered she felt good running for long periods and extended her 5km runs with the goal of running the half-Marathon des Deux Rives in 2011.
