I couldn’t find a way to comment on the Runner’s World article as I neither have nor will I create a Facebook account. But, I just read it and was thoroughly impressed. It was hard to get through when I read the few lines that point to the synonymous nature of poverty status and being a minorty. But, I left judgement aside and finished it.
Jay Jennings did an absolutely magnificent job. And thank you for meeting with Jay since your input was spot on.
If I lived in Atlanta, I’d join your group. I’m biracial, but identity wth my mom since I wasn’t raised in a Hispanic environment. Mostly I live in a black community and wasn’t even taught Spanish. Later in life, my track coach (black American) encouraged me to run distance. I credit him for getting me through and away from childhood asthma and the mental stigma of being told the first two years that I was only a sprinter. I won second the next year in our state regionals. I’d later ride my bicycle across Iowa more than once because the fear barrier had been broken.
I look forward to hearing more about your efforts.
Take care, and ride the inner wind.
