the power of purpose

WHEN I STARTED THINKING ABOUT the theme of this month’s issue, power, I kept thinking about how pivotal it is right now. “I can feel something happening,” cover star Allyson Felix told me. “When I first entered the sport I felt the culture wasn’t as supportive. In my experience there was a feeling that only one person could win; women didn’t support each other as much. I feel a shift in that now.” “It’s so important to celebrate and elevate each other,” she added. “I’m working hard to continue that.” And as the New Year starts, so are we. On page 50 you’ll find a feature I am very proud of. In it, we celebrate 20 elite female runners who are giving power new meaning, and a new image. It’s pushing…

a sight to see in boston

It seems like a no brainer, given the historical significance. And the fact that there are currently four other statues along the famed course: Walter Brown at the start; Dick and Rick Hoyt on the south side of the Hopkinton Green; 1946 winner Stylianos Kyriakides at the mile mark; and “Old John” A. Kelley near the 20-mile mark. But Gibb’s will be the first of a female. “It took us three years to wrap up the fund-raising, so it was much more like a marathon than the hurdles I used to run back in high school,” says Tim Kilduff of the nonprofit, Hopkinton-based 26.2 Foundation. “But I’m one-hundred percent certain the statue is going to happen. We’ve got the money, a spectacular site, and great community support.” The life-size statue of Gibb…

malo republic leggings

The firrst time you slip into them they'll feel tight, almost am-I-wearing-the-right-size tight, and a little thick. But then you'll start moving in them and instantly appreciate their fit and feel. Satiny, breathable and quick drying, these tights are as perfect for a sweaty indoor treadmill class as they are for running around outside on a slightly chilly morning. And unlike a lot of light-hued leggings, these will never white out. Even more reason to love them: Every time you make a purchase from MALO Republic, the company donates a top or bottom to one of their partner organizations--Good Sports in the US and Kit Bag For Kids in Australia--as a party of the company’s “buy one, give one” program. “Access to appropriate apparel and equipment can be a barrier for…

finding your power with alison desir

Finishing her first marathon in 2012 wasn't just a physical accomplishment for mental health counselor Alison Desir; the process also helped her manage symptoms of depression and anxiety. "It truly helped me see the world with a new perspective," Desir, 34, says. "For the first time in a long time I felt valuable and realized I could achieve really amazing things when I put my heart into it and stuck to a plan." That one transformative moment led to the start of Harlem Run club, which Desir founded in 2013, guided by her unshakable belief that running could change lives in her community—just as it had changed hers. After nearly six months of showing up every week alone ("no one showed up!" she recalls), Desir finally got her first few members,…

never count yourself out

Sinead Diver was an extremely active child growing up. But the conservative Catholic school she attended in the small Irish town of Belmullet didn't encourage girls to participate in athletics, aside from playing a little basketball at lunch. Because of her love of sports, she went on to study physical education at the University of Limerick. But it wasn't until after the birth of her first son Eddie in 2010, at age 33, that she gave running a shot. And we'll just say this right now: Her results, were anything but common. After only two years, Diver had secured numerous state titles and won the Australian Half Marathon Championship. Initially her focus was on shorter distances—track races, 10Ks, half marathons. But knowing that she got better when the races got longer, she…
