Every day should be Women’s Day.  Women are rockstars.  Women do it all.  I am in awe of many women that I know.  Let’s start with my mom and sisters.  My mom has 7 kids and like many mothers, did the best she could.  At age 46 she became a widow.  I was 19 then, and it wasn’t until I was in my 40s that that made sense to me.

There are many amazing women in my family.  They may not be “athletes” but I still admire them.  Some are single moms.  Some went back to school to further their education.  Some have full-time jobs and still have to go home to their kids.  <<How they do that is something I ask myself every day.  Just having a full-time job is exhausting for me.

The female athletes I admire are YOU.  Whether it is an injury, a personal issue, or a medical diagnosis, you all keep going. You find the positive in a negative situation.  You encourage and inspire others.  You cheer for everyone.  You are all busy with family, work, etc., yet still make time for running, cycling, etc.  There is no money there for you.  It is a hobby and something fun to do.

I know there are many famous athletes and I started to list a few here, but then I realized that you inspire me more than them.

The topic for next week:  What’s on your running wish list?  Feel free to write about this or any running-related topic.  We hope you’ll link up with us!

  1. That is actually true! The bloggers with whom I interact week after week are truly inspiring. I’ve also received some good advice in the comment section. So thankful to this dedicated group of female athletes!

  2. Totally agree that every day should be International Women’s Day! I think that female athletes that are also moms are totally super human.

  3. I love your approach to this week’s prompt. We are certainly part of a very diverse and inspiring group of women athletes.

  4. Your mom has seven kids??? She’s a rockstar- I can barely handle two.
    Yes, all the women we know who get out there and work out, not because it’s our job but because we just love it and want to make ourselves better. And all the bloggers who share their accomplishments and have formed this supportive community- thanks to everyone!
