The Weaker Sex
Women are frail, they say. The weaker sex. The ones who kept the fires burning while the men went hunting in search of food.
And yet, when you look at the world of endurance athletes, you find that so many of the best are women. The ultra-marathoning legend, Ann Trason, who often beat most of the men to the finish, and has broken the world record more than twenty times. Lizzy Hawker, who covered a world record distance of 153.5 miles in a single day’s running, finishing 2 miles ahead of her closest male competitor.
Who is the Weaker Sex?
A drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.
