With the New York City Marathon this weekend, there’s tons of great stories out there about people who will toe the line. My three favorites, so far:
Jen Miller’s story of facing her own ideas of self-acceptance and body image, and losing 25 pounds before this marathon — after running several at heavier weights. She also has a memoir coming out early next year that I’m excited to read.
And, after following along with her training this season, being inspired by my (online) friend Linda. She’s had a great training cycle and, as someone who was a marathoner before and after a cancer diagnosis in 2008, always has a fresh and frank perspective.
