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.
