Happy Birthday, Title Nine

Almost forgot to mention — yesterday was the 35th anniversary of the Title IX act, mandating equal federal funding for educational activities (not just athletics) for men and women.

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

Say what you will about Nixon — at least he signed this bill.

You go, girls. And boys.

  1. Any ideas for ways to keep my feet warm during winter running? I use Smart wool socks but my feet are still cold.

  2. On really cold days, I’ll wear “sock liners” — thin socks meant for wearing under your hiking socks — in addition to running socks. It also helps to wear waterproof running shoes. Anything with GoreTex will help keep the cold out.
