In 1967, she became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. During her run, race official Jock Semple at­tempt­ed to stop Switzer and grab her official bib; however, he was shoved to the ground by Switzer's boyfriend, Thomas Miller, who was running with her, and she com­plet­ed the race. It was not until 1972 that women were allowed to run the Boston Marathon of­fi­cial­ly.
