Runner’s loss

The world lost one of it’s greatest female athletes today.

Elite Norweigan runner Grete Waitz lost her six year battle with cancer this morning.  She was 57.

Waitz was a legend in the running world, having won the New York City Marathon a record nine times.  That’s more than any other woman…or man.

She also won a silver medal in the first ever Women’s Marathon event in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

She’ll undoubtedly be missed.
