First Woman to the Real Story of Kathrine Switzer’s 1967 Boston Marathon

0

Kathrine Virginia “Kathy” Switzer is an American author, television commentator and marathon runner. In 1967, she became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry.

During her run, race official Jock Semple attempted to stop Switzer and grab her official bib; however, he was shoved to the ground by Switzer’s boyfriend, who was running with her, and she completed the race. It was not until 1972 that women were allowed to run the Boston Marathon officially.

Personal life

In 1968, Switzer married Tom Miller, the man who had blocked officials for her while running the Boston Marathon in 1967. They divorced in 1973, and she then married and divorced public relations executive Philip Schaub and later married British-born runner and author Roger Robinson, in 1987

55 years ago, a runners officially entered as K.V. Switzer 1967 in the Boston Marathon. On Monday, she did it again at age 70.

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.

Tuesday afternoon Arnie picked up John, Tom, and me, and by 3 o’clock we hit the road for the five-hour drive to Boston. We found a motel in Natick, and after dinner Arnie insisted on showing us the course even though it was nearly 10 p.m. and freezing cold and rainy outside. He was excited at every land¬mark, saying things like “Here’s Wellesley College!” when we couldn’t see a thing out the steamy windows. The drive seemed an eternity, and I had this impending feeling of doom—here we were driving at 40 miles an hour and it was taking forever. Ever since that night I’ve never driven over a marathon course before the event. It is totally demoralizing to see how far 26 miles actually is.

She has said she hopes to run New York this year as well.

Of her legacy as a pioneer, she wrote in The Times: “We learned that women are not deficient in endurance and stamina, and that running requires no fancy facilities or equipment. Women’s marathoning has created a global legacy.”

Since 1967, Switzer’s become a champion for female runners, forming 261 Fearless, a nonprofit running club across the country.

Regardless of when Switzer crosses the finish line today, there’s no denying she’s already won in our eyes, a million times over.

If you thought pineapple was the worst thing to put on a pizza, you were very wrong. A restaurant in japan is offering pizza topped with cotton candy and seasoned with honey sauce.

They added pink coloring and cherry blossom flavoring to both the cotton candy and the ginger sauce. This special pizza is only a temporary item on the menu, and can only be ordered until April 2nd.

 
Cotton candy-topped junk food is trending and we’re all for it.
 
Cotton candy is usually associated with the summer carnivals of our childhood. But there’s more than one way to eat this fluffy treat, thanks to a new trend that has restaurants and cafes topping ice cream, lemonade, and pizza with cotton candy.
 
If cotton candy-smothered pizza sounds a bit too much for you, cotton candy topped with an ice cream sundae just may be the mashup dessert of your dreams. Served at the famously over-the-top Room for Dessert café in the Philippines, there’s no need for bowls or plates with this treat: The plentiful ice cream sundaes are snugly nestled on pink and blue clouds of pure sugar. It’s probably wise to eat these quickly, however, before you end up with a puddle on the floor.

New York Restaurant Serves $2,000 Pizza Covered in Edible 24K Gold

Yummy Pizza has be long been regarded as the food of the people, It’s cheap, easy to make and tastes awesome Pizza. But that doesn’t apply to all pizzas. For example, a restaurant in New York City serves a pizza that only the 1% can afford. It’s priced at $2,000 and comes covered in strips of edible 24K gold it’s amazing Pizza now you will be try it. You eat one time then will be your mind try to again

The Industry Kitchen restaurant in New York’s South Street Seaport was inspired by the nearby Financial District, which attracts the wealthy from all over the world, to create the “epitome of decadence” pizza. It’s officially called ‘the fence’s’, but epitome of decadence sounds much more appropriate. This outrageously expensive treat consists of a black pie made with squid ink, Stilton cheese imported from England, Fire Grass and truffles from France, Ossetia caviar harvested from the Caspian Sea, edible flowers, and lots of edible 24K gold strips and flakes from Ecuador.

 

“The pizza is extremely rich—if you’re in the mood for a lavish meal, this is the pizza for you,” Executive Chef Aurelio Bunyan says. It’s also one of the most expensive foods money can buy, but apparently preparing it in the “form of a pizza makes it more approachable.”

“The people get in shock because they never see in one dish all these special ingredients” Braulio told Insider. “It’s very expensive and it’s delicious” At $2,000 a pie – that’s $250 a slice and around $50 a bite – it damn well better be delicious.

The Weekly yoga Tips and Trick..

How many of you practice yoga? I know some of my followers would love to but they don’t. Some of you think it’s too slow, too feminine, too spiritual and so on.
None of the above could be so far from the truth. This week we will be learning why?

Are you too busy to connect with your body on the most basic level? Or are you too ignorant to understand the basic needs of the body to relax, stretch and strengthen?
“Stretching is not for me” – I hear that from so many people…and I wish you knew the consequences of this careless approach to the vehicle that drives you forward- your BODY.
Back pain, joint pain, bad posture, stiffness, hip replacements, arthritis and many other health concerns come from dismissing the importance to work your body in a controlled, relaxed manner in coordination with deep breathing.

If you don’t have time for classes, then find 5 minutes in the morning to carry out a few back stretches.
This week I will be showing a short sequence you can adopt to introduce into your morning routine and few other things.

Cheers to the existence of Yoga!
