One small step ...
Someone shared this clip on facebook, part of the PBS series on Makers: Women Who Made America, which will air early next year. The most amazing part of the footage is that this is 1967, long after such famous women athletes as Babe Didrikson, who probably could have run the Boston Marathon as fast as most guys. A long distance runner myself, it is great to see so many women competing in the Vilnius Marathon each year. It is certainly not a men only event. Here's to Kathrine Switzer!
