A women's marathon dream team will be assembling in New York City later this month.
Marathon greats Grete Waitz, Joan Benoit-Samuelson & Deena Kastor will be the featured speakers at a "Legends of the Marathon" discussion moderated by NYT's columnist and runner Tara Parker-Pope. (The event is at TheTimesCenter in NYC. Tickets are $30.)
What an amazing opportunity for Parker-Pope, who is training to run her first marathon later this year.
Here is the announcement from The New York Times and here is a link to the TimesTalks web page. (Note they mention Waitz, Benoit-Samuelson, Parker-Pope and "special guests." They must not have had Kastor confirmed when they added this to their TimesTalks web site.)
If only I could travel to NYC for this amazing event!
