Being the first to do something is scary. Being bold and fighting for your right to participate is hard. But in this story, Kathrine Switzer — the first official woman to run in the Boston Marathon — does it with grace. Men and women alike tell her it’s not possible — that women shouldn’t sweat, or run, or compete against men. Kathrine does it anyway. She trains hard and perseveres with the help of a friend and trainer. The collage artwork in this book echoes the energy and excitement of Kathrine’s story.
