"To cajole me
through tough evening sessions like this, Arnie told and retold stories of famous Bostons. I loved listening to them--until this night
when I snapped and said, "Oh, let's quit talking about the Boston Marathon and run the damn thing
"No woman can run the Boston Marathon," Arnie fired back.
"Why not? I'm running 10 miles a night!"
Arnie insisted the distance was too long for fragile women
to run and exploded when I said that Roberta Gibb
had jumped into the race and finished it the previous April."Semi-previously
