"Listen to those millions of women runners. Listen to their quiet breaths as they talk in predawn pairs, before the rest of the family wakes --the lessons and questions they share to the rhythm of steady footsteps.
'I never thought I could . . . ' 'I feel so much stronger . . . '
'I'm ready to take on a new challenge . . . '
Women develop a special sorority on the roads. This bond is an understanding based on acceptance, an appreciation of how far they have come, a knowing wink that says how much is yet to be gained. And so they talk and share and grow and run. Singly and in groups, swiftly and slowly, they run." --Dagny Scott
