Catriona discovered running in her 30’s and found joy in the movement itself. She ran her first half marathon after training on a treadmill only. Although she participates in marathons, she is less interested in the competitive nature of running and more in how running makes her feel, including how much more connected she feels to her surroundings as she experiences them as a runner. There are some great parallels between running and life. It’s also an enlightening history of the sport from the female perspective and how women were denied entrance into racing and long distance running until the second half of the 20 century.
