Central Park Jogger A Motivating Force

Unfortunately, the public persona of Trisha Meili is something other than her own.

Otherwise known as the “Central Park Jogger” who was brutally attacked, raped and left for dead 20 years ago, Meili has worked tirelessly to strike her own personal identity.

Each June, she appears at the “Hope and Possibility Five-Miler” in Central Park. She didn’t return to the bright future that appeared to await her in investment banking prior to the attack. Instead, she continues to run and act as an advocate against violence.

It’s odd how we only seem to know Trisha Meili as the “Central Park Jogger”. However, it’s an inspirational effort to learn more about who she is and what she does in Runner’s World's recent article by Sarah Lorge Butler -- This is a really motivating read!
