Title IX Threatened

First off, half-marathon went as well as could be expected (with a cold). Didn't need an ambulance and was able to run the whole way. Race report coming.

However, a more pressing matter has come to my attention. It appears that the Bush administration is proposing legislation that would threaten Title IX, which provides equal rights for women in sports. You can read more about this here:

If you have the time, please go to the website below and sign the petition to prevent our society from allowing women's rights to slip back to the 1950s. It's hard enough for us gals out there!
