Mommys Representing in NY

I really enjoyed this bit from the coverage of yesterday’s NY City Marathon, where Brit Paula Radcliffe won the women’s race:

…there was something seminal about the way Gary Lough emerged from the crowd at the finish line at the New York Marathon yesterday in order to hand his 10-month-old daughter, Isla, to her mother, Paula Radcliffe, moments after she won the New York City Marathon. And that is because Isla is among the first generation of daughters who will grow up watching their mothers compete as professional athletes.

Things like this make me very glad our daughter gets to grow up in this time.
