As someone who watched my brother run the NYC Marathon (26 miles) I have to give it to these ladies . Any type of marathon is a challenge. A half marathon may be a good start for someone who is considering it. Although I can think of several fierce females who are marathon ready ,so my hats off to you ladies who run through the rain , snow , heat etc. Ladies if we can handle the every day life what’s a half marathon? As Bey says ” Who run the world , Girls” #WomenRunTheWorld.

See you at the finish line! I’ll be cheering you on.
