They call themselves “Team GBI,” and they’ll be participating in a 13-mile run/walk during the Las Vegas Rock n’ Roll Marathon, on Sunday, December 6th. The patients have been training hard with the institute’s dietician, Prudence Ticknor, who has also been using a blog to advise them about nutrition and training for a half-marathon as properly as possible.
