At 7:52 I said “I can’t wait until I get to see you again” to my hero, my best friend, my inspiration, my wife. @gigrunewald
I always felt like the Robin to your Batman and I know I will never be able to fill this gaping hole in my heart or fill the shoes you have left behind. Your family loves you dearly as do your friends.
When @chipgaines made the final push in his #chipinchallenge I could feel your happiness building and could also see that this made you ready to head up to heaven.
Chip thanks for helping her to go up so peacefully with no suffering.
To everyone else from all ends of the earth, Gabriele heard your messages and was so deeply moved. She wants you to stay brave and keep all the hope in the world.
Thanks for helping keep her brave in her time of need 😪🙏🏻

Gabrielle Grunwald death:
Grunewald had lived with her cancer disease for 10 years and continued to train and race throughout the period she underwent several treatments to counter the illness, including having half of her liver removed in 2016.
Grunewald, the US champion over 3,000m indoors in 2014, is the 12th-fastest American woman in history over 1500m.
Grunewald was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) — an extremely rare cancer usually found in the salivary glands of the head and neck — in 2009, but still pursued her career in middle distance running.
Her cancer reappeared three more times over the next 10 years, during which she narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 1500 meters at the 2012 Olympics and also ran in trials for the same event in 2016.
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
