The month of March is Women’s History Month and I’m excited to share with you my conversation with Kathrine Switzer.
Kathrine was the first woman to officially register and run the Boston Marathon in 1967.
She was attacked in the race by an angry official who tried to rip off her bib number (#261) and throw her out of the race because she was a woman.
She finished the race anyway and went on to win the 1974 NYC Marathon and dedicated her life to championing women in sports all over the world.
Kathrine led the effort to make the women's marathon an official Olympic event in 1984.
She ran the Boston Marathon again, at age 70, on the 50th anniversary of her iconic run, and finished only 24 minutes slower than she did when she was 20 years old.
She launched her non-profit, 261 Fearless, named after her famous bib number, which empowers women all over the world though running.
