Mama K (CD5K), Training (read: Practicing)

A Big Thank You


Dear Kathrine Switzer,
Thank you. Thank you so much for running your race that day in 1967. Thank you, #261, for paving the way so women like us can believe that we have a place in the world of marathons. We may not be fast, but we are capable. Thank you, for never entertaining the thought of quitting. Thank you, for being so badass. Thank you for inspiring us to know that we can cross a finish line on our hands and knees if we have to.  We are ready to start training for the Coastal Delaware Marathon in April 2017 because we can proudly follow in your footsteps. You will be with us in spirit.     

Your admirers, 

Mama K & the Soleful Mamas Tribe
