Over the weekend my family and I visited Mystic, CT. It was so lovely getting away. And on Easter Sunday we walked all around the Mystic Seaport (maritime museum in a historic town setting). While we were there, these candy colored, stripey legs (belonging to a very adorable 5 year old who was enjoying an exhibit beside us) caught my eye. And she had a sassy kind of energy to match these bold socks…I picked up on this as I eavesdropped while she was chatting with one of the docents. This little gal seemed so confident and full of spirit. I bet she grows up to do big things…possibly something that requires stepping outside of the box…and maybe something that no one else has done yet.
Speaking of pioneering women, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the first time women were officially allowed to run the Boston Marathon (which starts here in my hometown of Hopkinton). Here’s a picture of this spirited group, before that historic run.
Friday night (April 13th) several of the women who ran in 1972, plus the first woman to ever run Boston (in 1966) will be in town at an event to celebrate their achievement. If you’re in the area come by and mingle with these trendsetters and hear their stories in a round table discussion hosted by WBZ-TV’s Lisa Hughes. You can get tickets for $5 (supporting a great cause)…hope to see you there.
