Godspeed Grete

The sport of running has lost one of its greats. Grete Waitz died of cancer Tuesday, far too young. Along with Joan Benoit, Waitz was one of the role models I idolized as a high school cross-country runner. She was so graceful and humble, something to aspire to.

Runner’s World editor at large Amby Burfoot has a moving tribute on his blog.
