This headline grabbed my attention earlier in the week.
“The principal of an Islamic school in Melbourne’s west has allegedly banned girls from running in sporting events out of concerns it may cause them to lose their virginity”.
Having just returned from a hard 10kms, I can safely say that the primary cause of the loss of virginity is the last thing on my mind.
Running is a fabulous way in which to keep fit. It builds confidence as well as stamina. It is essential that the generations that follow us should be encouraged to participate in exercise so as to avoid obesity and the growing problems with type 2 diabetes.
More running I say. Less of the other stuff…
PS The New SG Race Vests have arrive and are on sale now. They are fantastic.
