More to story on Run for Women

I always perceived the Run for Women (August 10) as a celebration of the every day woman … the overweight woman trying to shed some pounds, the older woman just getting into running, the busy mom slipping away from her household chores for some “me” time, and the women pushing strollers.

So when I saw the Clarion’s article on Sunday celebrating the cross-country superstars, I was a little dismayed. Granted, cross-country champs deserve their place in the sun. But I think the focus of the article should have been on women from all walks of life. There were over 100 women and children running, and it would have been so fascinating to hear their stories … or how about the countless volunteers who came to help. I am not too worried about the winners. They will get theirs medals and the spotlight for a long time to come. But it sure would be refreshing and inspiring to hear about the unsung heroes and heroines. I do think that a lot more women and children will be inspired to run if they read about people just like them.
