My book, "First Ladies of Running: 22 Inspiring Profiles Of The Rebels, Rule Breakers And Visionaries Who Changed The Sport Forever," was published in April 2016 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Roberta "Bobbi" Gibb's historic first-woman-to-run-Boston achievement in 1966.
The book covers the period from 1958 to 1984, when Joan Benoit won the first Olympic Marathon for women. It also has a chapter on Oprah Winfrey, since I ran the 1994 Marine Corps Marathon with Winfrey, and her success launched the women's running boom that continues to grow stronger every year.
First Ladies also has chapters on amazing women such as Grace Butcher, Julia Chase Brand, Doris Brown Heritage, Francie Larrieu, Mary Decker, Sara Mae Berman, Cheryl Bridges, Jacqueline Hansen, Gayle Barron, Patti Catalano, Grete Waitz, and more.
