"Although raising three children is the best adventure of all, this phase of my life is not marked by freedom—in terms of liberties & indulgences with time. But there is freedom in running. There is liberty & indulgence with time, even 30 precious minutes, if that's all the day affords. I am reminded...that adventure is out there, always whispering to me, calling me forward." Kristin Armstrong, Author & runner
Kristin Armstrong - wife of the famous Lance Armstrong - has become an athlete herself, a remarkable runner. I read a little excerpt about her on Shanti Sosienski's Women Who Run and was struck by her strength as she dealt with a very public divorce from Lance, raising her children, and picking herself back up. Again, I am inspired and moved by the healing powers of running. Kristin found solace, comfort, and a new start in life through running.
I cannot wait to get my hands on her book, Mile Markers: The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run. Has anyone read it yet?
