I'm 39 years old and I run 5Ks for one reason, my daughter. I know they are healthy for me, they are a good example of staying active and supporting my community, and they can be fun. But really, I am completely swept away by this girl who wants to keep running them...
A WOMAN IS OFTEN MEASURED by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve, by where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-26 and inches and ages and numbers, by all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside.
And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become.
Because every woman knows, measurements are only statistics and STATISTICS LIE." - Nike Women, 1990s ad campaign
