Women2Women - Fall 2017 - 7

Editor's Desk

Y

ou may read through this issue and think that it looks more like a fitness magazine than one
of our usual Women2Women publications! That's because when the editorial committee started
planning this issue, we were so excited that Kathrine Switzer was going to be the guest speaker for
our 7th annual launch of Women2Women that all things running became the unofficial theme
of the magazine.

As we got further into the publication, however, we realized that many of the principles that apply to
running - dedication, determination, endurance and a constant desire for self-improvement - also
are traits that women apply to other aspects of their lives, including business, mentorship, family,
community and health and wellness.
If the name "Kathrine Switzer" isn't familiar to you, it will be once you've finished reading this issue.
She was the first woman in 1967 to officially run the Boston Marathon. We are fortunate to have
Kathrine as our speaker this year, thanks in part to the Pagoda Pacers Athletic Club and other investors.
In this edition of Women2Women, you'll not only learn about Kathrine Switzer, but the Pagoda Pacers
and the role they play in our community, as well.

Also in this issue you'll get to know a female entrepreneur who has made it her business to assure
that women who run can stay safe, and another female entrepreneur that makes it her mission to
provide training and strategies on running for women of any ability level.
Beyond running, you'll learn about the Women2Women volunteers who were instrumental in
kicking off our summer youth reading program, and also about a new De Mujer a Mujer book club.
If you've ever wondered about how the articles that appear in this magazine are chosen and who writes
them, now's your chance to get to know some of the dedicated women who make those things happen
by serving as members of our editorial committee. You'll also get an opportunity in this issue to meet
Lucy Cortez, the new Chair of the Berks County Latino Chamber.
Because so many women are affected by issues related to perimenopause and menopause, we asked
two local physicians to weigh in about what to expect when you're approaching or experiencing
these stages of your life. The experts also tell you when to seek help for problems that could occur.
We know that you'll be anxious to see the 2017/2018 Women2Women Schedule of Programs and Events
that's included as an insert of the magazine, and hope you'll participate in many of the offerings.
Meanwhile, we'll plan to see you October 10 as we kick off our 7th year of Women2Women!
All the best,

Karen Marsdale
