Sylvia Ruegger achieved her dream, running in the first-ever women’s marathon in 1984, then had her chance at a medal in 1988 snatched away from her. Rather than lamenting what might have been, she focuses on the person that running has made her. Here, the national director of Start2Finish, a running & reading program for underprivileged kids, talks about how training and setting big goals makes women courageous, gutsy and mentally strong in this fifth & final installment of the virtual video launch of Older Faster Stronger. To watch all the videos in the series, click here. The launch of OFS was also a fundraiser for Start2Finish, where I am proud to volunteer as a running and reading coach. If you missed the launch & would like to contribute money or your volunteer time as a coach, please visit their website.
