Running Inspiration - A Thank You Note

You think running is hard? At least nowadays no one's going to try drag you out a race because you're a woman, like they did to Kathrine Switzer.



I saw this photo essay from Women's Running come through on Twitter on Wednesday January 15, and it just grabbed me emotionally. I owe these pioneers so much and I am so grateful - they paved the road for runners like me! I don't have to wear two jockstraps sewn together, I can choose from a crazy selection of sports bras. And so can you.

It may seem hard to start running but at least we don't have to face the kinds of challenges these women faced. Get out there and honor their fight!
