Let's Hear It For The Girls

Ladies, if you think you're not strong.  Or can't run fast.  Or are just too tired to train for a marathon, I have proof that you CAN DO IT!  Here's a quote from Born to Run:

"How come nearly all the women finish Leadville (100 mile off road running race) and fewer than half the men do?  Every year, more than 90 percent of the female runners come home with a buckle, while 50 percent of the men come home with an excuse.  Not even Ken Chlouber (race director) can explain the sky-high female finishing rate, but he can damn well exploit it: "All my pacers are women," Chlouber says.  "They get the job done."

We were all born to run, it's in our DNA. And women consistently outrun men in ultrarunning events around the globe.  "Beyond the very extreme of fatigue and distress, we may find amounts of ease and power we never dreamed ourselves to own; sources of strength never taxed at all because we never push through obstruction," said William James  an ultra runner.

So let's go, girls.  Who's ready?
