FEET FEATS: Running royalty Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as an official entrant and co-founder of social running community 261 Fearless Inc., was in Boston yesterday for a meetup with some of the women in the 261 Fearless Club Greater Boston. They met at the Adidas RunBase store on Boylston for one of their weekly training runs. And this being a small world, while zipping through the Boston Common, they ran into B.A.A. Executive Director Tom Grilk. Switzer will be at the Hopkinton Middle School today starting at 11 a.m. for a celebration thanking the town for continuing to support her and the sport of running.  See Original Post
