I sometimes forget what women before me have had to endure. I realized once again how women have had to fight to equal this week at the Boston Marathon. 50 years ago the first woman ran it, and Monday at age 70, she ran it again.
It is hard to believe that in my lifetime, a race official tried to keep a woman off the course!! I’m so thankful for strong women who have gone before me and paved the way in so many areas of life. How brave she was to do this all those years ago, and how brave she was to train for and run Boston at age 70.
I’m so proud to know two young women who ran it this year!!
