The Sacramento Fleet Feet Sports' Women's Fitness Festival benefits WEAVE, Sacramento’s primary provider of domestic violence and sexual assault services. Great beneficiary, great time of year to go running, a well organized race, and fast becoming a Sacramento staple. This 5k winds around the State Capitol and is a great summer race for Northern California women.
I'm posting this to wish every runner good luck and also to give a big "way to go!" to both my wife and my mom in law who are making this their 2nd year of participation!
That being said, dear readers/fellow tweeps (I feel dirty typing that you know) daily mile denizens, etc. :
What do YOU think of all women events?
We belong to a gym that used to have an all women's section (which I thought was great, I am a father, a son, and a husband and believe that sometimes it's nice for women to have a section all to themselves) yet somehow the gym was forced to make it a 'co-ed' section, which doesn't really make sense to me.
On the other hand, some might say that having an all women's event sorta goes against the point Kathrine Switzer was making when she blazed onto the Boston Marathon on that fateful day in 1967.
Are all women's event's discriminatory? Are they a non-issue?
Lastly - what makes this last year's participant/bandit such a special snowflake that he went ahead and ran ? Happy Friday!
