Who’s That Girl (next door)?

From Facebook, a post by Falls Road Running Store in Baltimore:

“Pete’s brother’s neighbor died. She had an accent, said “Hello” and talked of planting trees and flowers. He got today’s paper and discovered that his neighbor wasn’t just a gardener, she had won NYC marathon 9 times. Greta Waitz had just died of cancer.

Makes me think that maybe on runs we should put away the iPods and Smartphones and talk to the person next to us, and find out who they really are.”

Thank you whoever posts for Falls Road for the reminder.

for more on Greta Waitz, see Amby Burfoot’s tribute at Runner’s World
