Kathy Switzer wearing Pierre Laurent

Kathy was the first woman to “officially” run in the Boston Marathon in 1967 in spite of an official trying to strip her of her number while running. She entered under the name K.V. Switzer as she was known and they did not imagine it could be a woman. She celebrated her 50 years by running it again in 2018.
