Katherine Switzer: ...that we all have much more ability than we think we do

Nobody Told Me!

This is an incredibly motivating episode to listen to as you make your New Year's resolutions! Kathrine Switzer is one of the most iconic figures in running. She was the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon in 1967 and made history as she ran it again fifty years later in 2017 at the age of seventy! Kathrine was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame for creating a social revolution by empowering women around the world through running. In this episode, we discuss why and how she ran her first Boston Marathon, how it inspired the world to take women's running seriously, how to become a runner at any age (people in their nineties do marathons!), and how being an ordinary person who works harder than anyone else can give you the competitive edge over someone with natural talent. You can learn more about her at kathrineswitzer.com. This episode originally aired in December 2018 and is part of our 'Best Of' series. ****** Thanks to our sponsor of this episode! --> Aurate: you can check out The Vintage Ring Collection and everything else Aurate has — and get 15% off your first purchase when you go to auratenewyork.com/nobodytoldme and use promo code nobody told at checkout.  --> AirMedCare: if you're ever in need of emergency medical transport, AirMedCare Network provides members with world class air transport services to the nearest appropriate hospital with no out of pocket expenses.

At 73, she proves that age is just a number as she continues to run marathons and works to change the world.
