MARATHON WOMAN soft cover-signed copy: $19.95 unit price

MARATHON WOMAN hard cover-signed copy: $44.95 (There is a reason this is expensive! See * below)

Kathrine Switzer first launched the hardcover edition of MARATHON WOMAN (Carroll & Graf Publishers) in April 2007 on the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of her first running the Boston Marathon. In April 2008, MARATHON WOMAN won the Billie Award for journalism for its inspiring portrayal of women in sports. Switzer first changed history in 1967 when she joined the then all-male Boston Marathon and finished, despite being attacked by the race director and nearly thrown out of the event. She went on to run 37 marathons, won the New York City Marathon and led the drive to get the women’s marathon into the Olympic Games. She is still running today. As a leader, athlete and woman, Switzer continues to inspire people everywhere. She tells her story in this powerful, frank, inspiring and often funny book that has been delighting women AND men readers and reviewers everywhere. In 2009, the soft-cover and updated edition of MARATHON WOMAN was launched. (Da Capo Press)

Available now are a few rare copies of the first hard cover edition (pictured above, on left). All copies–both hard and soft–have my personal autograph. – Please ORDER NOW, as quantities are limited.

*This is expensive because when a book is first published in hard cover, only a limited number of copies are made. When those are sold, it is usually reprinted in soft cover (paperback). Since there are only a few of these first-editions left, they are considered collectors’ items.

26.2 MARATHON STORIES hard cover-signed (by both authors) copy: $37.95

Launched at the 2006 Boston Marathon, ’26.2 MARATHON STORIES’ (Rodale Press), was soon hailed by Runners World Magazine as one of the top five running books ever. This amazingly beautiful and substantial book is the first one co-authored by Kathrine Switzer and her husband Roger Robinson, noted running historian, raconteur and world-class runner. (www.Roger-Robinson.com). With lush and enticing color photos from races around the world, this book does more than lay on your coffee table with pride-it is the first to accurately give the marathon’s origins, and tell how an obscure activity grew to an event that changed the streets of major cities of the world…as well as all of our lives. (Unsure about a gift for the marathoner in your life? This is the book that covers it all, and beautifully.)

MARATHON WOMAN long-sleeved fitted black T-shirt: $29.95

In your T-shirt drawer, you have 100 shirts…but only one you wear again and again, right? It’s the one that is all-day comfortable (!), sexy (!!), and goes with everything–shorts, jeans, skirts, and makes you feel great all over. Kathrine created a shirt of the finest, softest black (slimming) cotton, with 2% spandex (the sexy part) and hates to take it off. (Being fine cotton, it doesn’t stink either). Alone or under a prickly sweater, on a plane that goes sticky in one minute and cold the next, she even wears it in cool weather races. No matter how she runs, there is no doubt: she always looks HOT at the finish line! And you will too. Machine wash or do what she does-take it with you in the shower and walk on it. In either case, best to hang it on the shower rail to dry, it dries in a moment and keeps its edgy blackness. Shirts run true to size, with extra body and sleeve length. Kathrine wears a medium; she is 5′ 7″, weighs 134 pounds and has long arms and a long torso.

The Legend– the CULT! –of “261″:

In 1967, I was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon with an official bib number. The race director was so infuriated that I, a woman, had entered his male-only race, he attacked me during the race and tried to rip the numbers off my body. My running buddy guy-friends bounced the official out of the race instead and I went on to finish. Since that time, the Legend of 261 has grown to symbolize fearlessness in the face of adversity, and women have spontaneously begun wearing the numbers to give themselves courage and heart…and to be fearless when it gets tough.
