Run like a woman

I love the saying "run like a girl" because to me it means run powerfully, and have fun doing it. Recently I've been thinking about what "run like a woman" might mean. Does it mean a more mature runner? Maybe. A more refined runner? Probably not - are runners ever really refined? To me to "run like a woman" means:
  • How how to train - with your mind and your body
  • Have fun! If it's not fun, you're probably in the wrong sport
  • See the walls and know you can overcome them
  • Push to do better - do better than you did before (and, if you're competitive like me, do better than the field)
  • Run to inspire - inspire yourself and run to help others
