This is an incredibly motivating episode to listen to as you make your New Year's resolutions! Kathrine Switzer is one of the most iconic figures in running. She was the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon in 1967 and made history as she ran it again fifty years later in 2017 at the age of seventy! Kathrine was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame for creating a social revolution by empowering women around the world through running. In this episode, we discuss why and how she ran her first Boston Marathon, how it inspired the world to take women's running seriously, how to become a runner at any age (people in their nineties do marathons!), and how being an ordinary person who works harder than anyone else can give you the competitive edge over someone with natural talent.
