The Blue Eyed Warrior

The Adventures of the Norse Goddess of War

“Wrapped in our silver capes and adorned with medals and salt streaked caps as our crowns, we were princesses of pain, loving every minute of it. Isn’t it the weirdest thing?something so damn hard, so humbling, so fickle, so painful, is also the thing we seek on purpose? Sitting there, surrounded by my friends and cracking up, I had a flash of myself at age 70.”

-Kristin Armstrong, after running the 2011 Boston Marathon, via Runner’s World
