Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry.

She registered for the race under the gender-neutral “K. V. Switzer. Race official Jock Semple attempted to physically remove her from the race, and according to Switzer said, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend Tom Miller, who was running with her, shoved Semple aside and sent him flying, and other runners provided a shield for her. The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

Was just talking about this to my mother the other day…Katherine Switzer’s interview in The Makers is pretty awesome.

Without - obviously I don’t want to spoil too much for the viewers, but there is more that could be done with the Winter Soldier after this movie. Do you know - is that going to happen in Age of Ultron, or is that being left to a future Captain America movie?
As of right now, I don’t believe I’m involved with the Age of Ultron. That I can definitely say. As for the latter, listen: I don’t know. We’re just literally now putting this movie out there. You know how the story goes in the comic books. There’s a lot there to be covered still, and I’m equally interested to see where the guys are going to take it next. As far as I’m concerned, we just scratched the tip of the iceberg.

T O D A Y. Today… At the edge of our hope — at the end of our time, we have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today there is not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Not today. T O D A Y we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them! Today, we are c a n c e l i n g the apocalypse!
