There's always a mile one. Mile one is the distance of resistance. The most difficult mile of all. That barrier we face, between us and the run. When the body is in stasis. But our heart yearns to stride and strike the earth.
Celebrating female firsts, women's leadership and sports, and women led traditions is something we want to see more of in the world. So last year, we started giving out The Linda Prefontaine High Flyer Award. Linda, sister to Steve and a friend of mine who I met when we were both starting our businesses, came to our first event in Eugene, and we had the honor of handing out her necklaces as the awards to four recipients: Beth Sullivan, Lauryn Williams, Taylor Dutch, and Allie Bigelow. Each leading in the sport of running in different ways. And this year - we were honored to receive so many stellar nominations!
