Eyes weren't just on the winners at the Boston Marathon on Monday Morning. Fifty years ago, Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to complete the all-male race back in 1967. Today, on April 17th, Switzer ran once again in the marathon. She is 70 years-old. When she first participated, Switzer registered under the name K.V. to hide her gender.
