Re: Slop in the Wind

"If you are losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon." ~ Katherine Switzer

I watched a movie on Hulu called Free to Run. It's a very good running history movie. The movie begins with a man talking about how few runners there were back in the sixties and how those runners were considered odd eccentrics. Back then running was considered by many to be a dangerous activity and women were not allowed to run in many of the early races. The movie tells the history of how runners like Steve Prefontaine and Kathrine Switzer made running the popular sport it is today.
