Fr. Chris Ryan, SJ, a parochial vicar at St. Raphael the Archangel Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, runs to stay in shape. He has run in 13 marathons, about one a year, and hopes to qualify for the Boston Marathon in 2019. Regular exercise has led to an overall improvement in his health, he said, as he sleeps better and is more conscious about what he eats!
