Have you heard about the elite female runner, four time Boston marathon winner named Catherine Ndereba? I didn’t until yesterday, and I was very intrigued to learn more. So I followed the link to the blog, read through it, as well as watched a brief clip of an upcoming documentary. It gives an inside look at her life.
The goal of the producer Stefani L Weiss in her words: “My journey to tell the story of how World Champion Kenyan marathon runner Catherine Ndereba has inspired many through her running and how her faith has guided her. This story will explore the many ways she stands as a role model for Kenyan women and girls and how she inspires others to pursue their education and dreams and not be bound by the traditional role women have been bound to in Kenya. “ Although Catherine faced many obstacles in her country, she was able to overcome it and persevere. She has been an inspiration to many young girls in Kenya. I am not an elite runner, but I am a runner. I run because I love it and have a passion for it. In watching the short clip, Catherine’s passion for running emanates from the screen. Her eyes and her entire face just light up.
