Marathon woman : running the race to revolutionize women's sports by Kathrine Switzer ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to register for and wear bib numbers in what was then the all-male Boston Marathon, infuriating one of the event's directors. He attacked her midrace, trying to violently eject her. In what would become one of the all-time iconic images in sports, Switzer escaped from the director, with the help of her fellow runners, and finished the race. Not only was this a watershed moment for the sport, it also became a significant event in women's history - a force for social change and empowerment for women worldwide. Switzer went on to create the Avon Running program, composed of events in twenty-seven countries, with more than a million women participants, and was instrumental in securing the women's marathon event in the Olympic Games, an event which changed world thinking on women's capabilities." "Marathon Woman is Kathrine Switzer's personal story about how she overcame the odds - as well as public ridicule - to become one of the greatest marathon runners of her time, and an authority on women's sports and fitness. From the childhood events that inspired her to succeed as an athlete, through her triumph in the 1974 New York City Marathon, a best marathon time of 2:51 among the thirty-five marathons she has finished, and her work as one of the sport's greatest ambassadors - this liberally illustrated book details the struggles and achievements of one of the pioneering women in sports."--BOOK JACKET

As good as gold : 1 woman, 9 sports, 10 countries, and a 2-year quest to make the summer olympics by Kathryn Bertine ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Imagine George Plimpton. Except with real athletic ability. And he's a woman. And she's taken on a challenge that makes Paper Lion look like a brisk game of Go Fish. Meet Kathryn Bertine, elite triathlete, former professional figure skater, and starving artist. Just as her personal and professional dreams begin to crumble in the summer of 2006, ESPN stakes her to a dream: Take two years to make the 2008 summer Olympics in Beijing. As Good As Gold is the heroic, hilarious account of Bertine's serial exertions in the realms of triathlon, modern pentathlon, team handball, track cycling, road cycling, rowing, open water swimming, racewalking, and'fasten your seatbelts'luge. On her journey, the obstacles range from jet lag to jellyfish, flat tires to floundering relationships, repeated rejection to road rash. But, as time is running out, Bertine doesn't sweat the small stuff, only the large'like scouring the globe for a tiny nation to adopt her, and pushing her body and mind as far as it will go. Maybe all the way to China. Between harrowing, often laugh-out-loud episodes of triumph and humiliation, Bertine takes short "Water Breaks" to contemplate the ins-and-outs of fan mail, failure, rehydration, nasal reconstruction, and how best to punish steroid users. Kathryn Bertine swims, runs, and rides'and writes'like a champion. In As Good as Gold, Bertine proves she has something more valuable than an Olympic medal. She's got Olympic mettle. When it comes to the human heart, she takes the gold. From the Hardcover edition
