Quote: Don Kardong on Sports are Silly

Don Kardong,67 - Noted Marathonist and Author. 1976 Summer Games Olympiad

Don Kardong, 67 – Noted Marathon Runner and Author. 1976 Summer Games Men’s Marathon Olympiad Representing U.S.A.

“Eventually, competition and adventure wane, and I entered my ibuprofen phase. Tweaky hamstrings and achy knees restrict mileage, but I continue running for health, sanity and the ritual of a Sunday rail run with like-minded buddies. We discuss the nagging injuries that bedevil us, and remember the good old days when we were kings.”

If these kind of life-long injuries happen to the men who were born to physically take part in certain sports, why would any father encourage his young daughter to play sports originally designed for those same men. kqd
