* First Woman to Enter Boston Marathon Runs It Again, 50 Years Later (2017-Apr-17) [NYT]

Kathrine Switzer’s marathon in 1967 became historic because she was the first woman to complete the all-male race as an official entrant — her registration as “K.V. Switzer” hid her gender. The race resonated far beyond a footnote in the record books when an official tried to force her from the course after a few miles.
