The Anniversary

On April 19, 1967, 20 year old Kathrine Switzer started the Boston Marathon, then closed to women, after registering as K.V. Switzer. After 2 miles, the irate race director, Jock Semple, tried to force Switzer off the course. Her boyfriend, Tom Miller, fought Semple off, and Switzer went on to finish.
