1996 Audre Runs the Venice Marathon

Just before Audre's 50th birthday, she ran the Venice Marathon in under 5 hours. Dimitri and Audre had been training for the marathon since they were in Istanbul in May 1996. Then in Kapadokya, Turkey in September 1996, Dimitri's back started hurting. He had a herniated disk and it didn't repair itself for an entire year. He couldn't run the marathon in Venice, Italy so Audre had to do it herself. Audre was in the best shape of her life at 50 years old. (Fortunately, Dimitri's herniated disk did not interfere with Dimitri's skiing.)
