We All Love Our Sport!

Headband from a race. My favorite saying!

On Monday, Boston Marathon will be back to the usual day and time. It will also be celebrating 50 years women running the race legally. That race proved women can do endurance events without harming their bodies. In June of that year, Title IX law was created to prevent sex discrimination including in sports, which has gone through multiple revisions. I love the inscription on the headband in the above picture because it is so true. When you watch the marathon or at any races, not all athletes are skinny but the majority are all shapes and sizes. This brings me to the next topic, don’t criticize or comment on their bodies. This can make them uncomfortable and can lead to eating disorders. Eve and I talked about this during our long run today. Yeah we are endurance athletes but we don’t like the comments other people including women make about our bodies. But be positive about what we (all athletes) have accomplish in the sports. That positive vibe will motivate these athletes to continuing enjoying the sport and doing it. Be healthy and safe! @pamhouck
