ESPN.com publishes Schirmer's, 'Boston Marathon: What we're running for'

April 25, 2016

UW-Madison’s Eleni Schirmer recently wrote an inspirational essay for ESPN.com headlined, “Boston Marathon: What we’re running for.”

Schirmer is a doctoral student with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Policy Studies and Curriculum and Instruction, where she studies social movements and education.

Schirmer writes: “Sometimes people ask me, Why run? Me, I run to realize. We are all alone, and everyone is with us. Running brings me horizons -- the need for sunrise and for sleep, the need for friends, the need for solitude. Sometimes I go fast, sometimes I go alone, sometimes slow, sometimes together -- just like the Boston marathon runners.”
