Babe of the Week: Christine Grant

I remember the very first time I heard of Title IX. I was 16, playing for my high school varsity softball team and in the preseason when it was still freezing in New Jersey, we’d practice inside.

Happy Monday, Babes! The New York City Marathon was yesterday. Congratulations to everyone who ran. You accomplish something that I could truly never imagine and cannot find the wherewithal to even think about training for, mostly because I went for a run this morning and stopped after 3 minutes.
