50 years ago today, Kathrine Switzer was the first female to complete the Boston Marathon. Race organizer, Jock Semple, attempted to stop her by yanking off her bib, as women were banned from competing in marathons. Today (at age 70), she ran the marathon once again wearing bib number 261!! Cheers to all the groundbreaking women who have fought for women's rights. We wouldn't be where we are today without you ✨ #kathrineswitzer #bostonmarathon #shedid
