Ruling the World! (Well, the Running World at least)
I have had this blog for a few months now and I believe that I have come a long way. To think that merely 2 months ago, this blog didn’t even exist! Now I have followers, I follow others and I even have Twitter and a Facebook page for this blog! (Twitter: @AlexRunner27 Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Runner-A-Dying-Breed/192846117456326?sk=wall)
When you really think about it though, my little blog barely makes a blip on the radar. I’m not being negative, I’m just being honest. Who knows or cares about Alex Turner, XC and Track and Field runner? Or her blog? Or Facebook page? Or Twitter? I’m presuming not a whole lot of people. Even though I want to, I don’t make that much of a difference in the world.
However, there are people who do make an impact. Some are nationally known while others are known only in the internet world, but they all make a difference. These people are listened to and followed, whether they are dead or alive. Some are actors, some are political figures, others are athletes or teachers. From George Washington to Martin Luther King Jr to Bill Gates, these people have been revered through history. We view them as visionaries.
The people I am going to talk about may not be historical icons, but they have made a difference in the athletic world and I believe they deserve recognition for it.
