The incredible story of Bobbi Gibb, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon

What’s not to love about a woman who, well…..JUST DID IT.

I only stumbled across knowledge of Ms. Gibb within the past decade.  Only recently did I learn she was a lawyer.  What a fabulous role model she is for us, for our girls, and for anyone – really – who has been told, “but, not you.” 

May her hard work, courage, and utter lack of Lululemon workout attire inspire you today and this week!

Love to you all, SCC

From Women in the World, in association with the New York Times authored by  BRIGIT KATZ:

“Bobbi Gibb is seventy-two years old. At various points in her life, she has worked as a horse-riding instructor, a sculptor, a lawyer, and an associate in a neuroscience laboratory. She has written a book about inflation, and one about economics. She is putting together a collection of essays and a children’s book. She is collaborating on a film project. She is a mother, which she says is “the best thing” she ever did. And in 1966, Bobbi Gibb was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon.”
