Distinctive Iron Cougar:

A 50+ woman who has sustained lifelong regular physical activity and
championed-a-cause or caused-a-champion

The physical activity doors were not exactly open to Iron Cougars during their formative years.  Many had to first find the doors to open but prevail they did, for no barrier matched their heart's impelling voice to engage.      

Many Iron Cougars were physical activity 'Firsts;' game changers and role models first to compete on a worldwide stage, but also firsts within their local communities.  No doubt Ms. King's victory over Mr. Riggs is a permanently etched first in the memory banks of many women - but countless other local victories likely are too - Iron Cougars first to join their local gym, or organize a neighborhood walking group, or create a softball league, or demand the park add programming for girls...  

These are Distinctive Iron Cougars, relentless trailblazers who championed causes or caused champions while sustaining regular physical activity across their lifetimes.
