Runners Across the Country and In Philadelphia ‘Finish Liza’s Run’
Eliza was a teacher. She was a mother, and she was doing something we runners enjoy doing. I could go into a tirade here about how women should be able to run, anytime of day, wearing whatever she wants and not have to worry about being murdered, but we can have that conversation another time. Today we will remember Eliza, we will finish the run she was denied and we will do our best to ensure this never happens again.
It breaks my heart that this isn’t the first time I am joining a movement to finish a run that was begun by a woman whose run ended violently. Here’s hoping this doesn’t become habit. https://runsignup.com/Race/Events/OR/Anytown/RunforEliza
