Historic Run For New Paltz Woman

50 years after she was the first woman to officially enter the Boston Marathon, Katherine Switzer of New Paltz ran the race again yesterday. 

She made her historic run in 1967 when she was just 20 years old, and yesterday she completed the race at 70 years of age.  Yesterday she wore bib number 261 just like she did fifty years ago.
