Reflecting on the Women’s More Fitness Half Marathon
The Women’s More Fitness Half Marathon took place on April 19th 2015.
My sister was a proud participant, and I was a proud audience member. During
the Half Marathon, I did not cheer for just my sister, but all of the women
running to promote fitness for women. The event was an example of a great
opportunity for any woman looking for a challenge. While cheering on for those
running, I noticed how happy each person was to be running for a cause. The fact
that the event enabled both supporters and runners to come together and
promote women’s fitness was amazing. The strength of the audience and runners
demonstrated how powerful fitness is when done together. Although the runners
were all female, many of the audience members were dads and sons and others
supporting a cause that was not specific to them. This showed me that people
care about more than that which merely concerns them. We are so lucky to have
accessibility to free fitness facilities in NYC such as central park. The race signified
that those places to practice fitness are not exclusive to males, and female fitness
is equally important to male fitness.
