Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer went after Switzer shouting. However, other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.
Marathon. A downloadable poem. Monday, April 21, 2014 is the Boston Marathon. Remember those who were killed or injured last year, and their families. This is a poem for marathon runners. Run well, runners!
Boston. In 1999-2001 I lived on the corner of Mass Ave and Comm Ave, and appreciated Patriot's Day off from work and would occasionally walk over to gape at the runners and wonder why they did it. Now, of course, I'm wondering just how hard I'll have to work to someday hit 3:40...(Really, really, really, really, really hard but the not knowing if I can do it or not is part of why I think I have to go for it.)
