Marathon Woman

‘‘I don’t rate myself a great athlete—not at all,” Kathrine Switzer tells me, “but running saves my life. Every day. It’s my stress-buster. It’s my creative fount. It’s my inspiration. No matter how crappy the day is, the run makes it right.”

Switzer, now 71, has long been an inspiration to those who run and to women in sports. She’ll be a special guest at the Toronto Marathon on May 6, representing her 261 Fearless network for female runners. She is today a noted author, journalist, and broadcaster. But in the beginning was the “Incident.”
