I was saddened to learn the great women of marathoning, Grete Waitz, died today at age 57.
She was an amazing runner....and won the NYC marathon 9 times. If you get a chance to see the documentary Run for your Life which is about Fred Lebow and the start of the NYC marathon you'll know what a great person she was too.
NYT obit here.
I just heard about that; did she have cancer? Truly a legend who will be greatly missed!ReplyDelete
She was such an inspirational runner because of her great attitude; she was truly a running role model to the world. Thanks for sharing this.ReplyDelete
@jill: She lived with cancer for 20 years apparently.ReplyDelete
