I'm super proud of my Athena status and wish there were more online communities like this one that celebrated Athena and Clydesdale runners. That's why I just finally created one myself on facebook and Twitter called AthenaRunning. www.facebook.com/AthenaRunning After running 6 full marathons, 30 half marathons, and training for my first half Ironman triathlon, I STILL get the nay-sayers that say I'm not a real runner. But with the bad, comes very supportive and encouraging non-Athenas and Clydesdales that respect me as a real runner. Keep running everyone!!
