Woman who trained while battling cancer places fifth in Go! St. Louis Marathon

She's run in 4 Boston Marathons, but the Go! marathon was unique. You see, after she has defeated a deadly disease for now, and she nearly beat everyone in the field at Sunday's race.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer. She continued to train. Sometimes, Jill Burch would do Chemo for a week and the next week she would run 40 miles.

She hasn't stopped running since. Yesterday, Burch put on an incredible performance at the Go Marathon.

Frank Cusumano has the story.
