Joan Benoit Samuelson may be the most inspiring female distance runner ever. In 1984 she won gold in the first Women’s Marathon ever held at the Olympics. Just weeks ago at the age of 61, she completed the Boston Marathon within 30 minutes of her very first time, exactly forty years ago. Joan shares with Growing Bolder what she believes it takes to stay in the race at any age.

We are so sad to learn of the passing of our friend, the extraordinary Vivian Carrington. Ms. Vi, as she was affectionately known by all, was her city's first female African-American lifeguard. She spent decades helping and ministering to the people of her community. While battling lupus, she returned to college to finish her degree and proudly walked across the stage to receive her diploma at the age of 76. Our thoughts are with her family and all lucky enough to be touched by her infectious smile and spirit.
