"Start Something" • Prior to 1966 no woman had ever run the Boston Marathon. And then along came Roberta Gibb. Her intrepid marathon run (3:21:40) convincingly dispelled the false belief that women were physiologically incapable of running 26 miles. Bobbi opened the door for all other women to follow, and on that remarkable Patriots Day the storied sporting event was suddenly a men's club no more. #thankyouBobbi #nobarriers #womenempowerment #womenwhorun #beboston #runhappy #instarunners #inspirationalwomen #bostonmarathon

@compendiumliveinspired has recently published a gorgeous new children's book titled "The Girl Who Ran" with illustrations by Susanna Chapman. The story recounts how Bobbi Gibb's unbridled joy of running led to her landmark run in 1966, the first ever by a woman in the Boston Marathon. Bobbi's grit and determination that day inspired other women to follow, and paved the way for entry reform in road races of all distances. #tobostonwithlove #compendiumliveinspired #bostonmarathon #breakingbarriers #marathontraining #runningcommunity #startsomething #inspiringwomen

#Repost @runnersloveyoga (@get_repost) ・・・ Climbed a few big hills on the run today with a nice mix of trails and roads. It's really so crazy how your body adapts to the heat--it was 84 for my run today, and it *almost* seemed cool. Meanwhile, *almost* fully moved out of the old apartment, phew! Moving TOTALLY counts as cross training except real cross training is a ⭐️ LOT ⭐️ more fun! I guess like the hills on a run though, life would be relatively not as much fun if everything were "fun" all the time. (This is of course also horrible ironic as an analogy as I myself actually love running hills. 😂) #RunnersLoveYoga #doyogarunfaster #getoutside #inspired #trailrunner

"To Boston with love" • The greatest triumphs are achieved through dedication, preparation, and goodness of heart. Equipped with these assets Bobbi Gibb became the first woman to ever run the Boston Marathon in April of 1966. Her 3:21:40 finish convincingly dispelled a mountain of false beliefs about women's athletic capacities, inspired other runners to follow, and led to the demise of male-only road races everywhere. • • • Oh by the way, Bobbi's "next first" (in April 2018) is going to be a true work of art, and you can help.

#Repost @run_rhandi_run (@get_repost) ・・・ She took a leap and built her wings on the way down. ➰ What a beautiful adventure yesterday hiking in the Spanish Pyrenees with my hubs. We had planned on summiting Mt. Aneto- the highest peak in the Pyrenees but knew there was a chance we might have to turn back due to inclement weather. We had to get to the peak by a certain time that we knew wasn't probable but it was our only full day slated for hiking so we went for it anyway. A few miles into the hike the trail basically ended and we had to do some fairly advanced bouldering for a couple of hours 😳. It became a game of who could spot the next cairn first 😂 and finding those little stacks of rocks was quite the "Where is Waldo" experience. We had no idea about this section of the hike and although it was fun and challenging it was slow moving and we were counting on getting up and down the mountain quickly in order to beat the weather. Now we understood why we were told it was a 12-13 hour hike. We thought we could do it all in 7-8 as we would trail run what we could, and knowing our hiking history we typically take much less time than suggested. We were still (according to my @suunto) about 1,500 feet from the top when we had to turn around for safety reasons. Bouldering down a mountain in a lightning storm and torrential downpour = stupid. A good mountaineer knows when to turn back. As hard as it was, we stuck to our decision and enjoyed our hike back down the mountain. I've only had to turn around one other time and I wish # 2 wasn't in Spain but it was a wise decision. The cherry on top was having the hike bookended by spotting a lynx as we drove to the trail head and seeing a pair of golden eagles soar past us as we looked upon them from above. #optoutside #hike #climbmountains #spain #getoutside #runhappy #inspired

"Unicorns & Mythology" • Prior to 1966 no woman had ever attempted to run the venerable Boston Marathon. Why would they? All the so-called running experts insisted that the fairer sex was "physiologically incapable of covering 26 miles by foot". Then along came Roberta Gibb. Her landmark run (3:21:40) rocked the running world, dispelled mythology, and blazed a clear path for other women to follow. • (And just for the record, unicorns aren't real) #thankyouBobbi #nobarriers #womenempowerment #womenwhorun #beboston #runhappy #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #badassery #strongwomen #startsomething #inspiringwomen #marathon #shepersisted #bostonmarathon #womensrunningcomunity

#Repost @athletestyle (@get_repost) ・・・ Little fan on my tempo run. 5k/4k/3/2 this morning. The hardest thing for me in these workouts is to start out slow enough so you can really drop the paces down and be fast at the end. #running #trail #triathlon #training #newpaltz #getoutside

#Repost @kkapinos (@get_repost) ・・・ 💙💛 Every Marathon I run reminds me of how freaking cool and good people are. I saw so many incredible moments yesterday of PEOPLE helping PEOPLE. Whether it was spectators handing out ice(which saved me BTW), water, wet paper towels. Or runners grabbing water bottles, taking a drink and then passing off to other runners... all of the medical personal, the police, the volunteers, frantically filling cups to hand off to runners. I love this pic that shows these volunteers were just as happy to hand off a medal to runners as we were to receive it. Boston Marathon is incredible. I also met the nurse I threw up on at the finish last year. She remembered me!!! 🙈I believe people are good. And running yesterday was a great reminder of that. RUN FOR LIFE!!! 📸: @whydoirun #beboston #bostonmarathon #bostonmarathon2017 #coyote #runhappy #garminfitness #marathon #marathoner #pizzamyheart
