More Information: Kathrine Switzer - Keep Breaking Barriers!
Kathrine Switzer being the brain child of the Avon Running Global Women's Circuit, was both inspirational and influential in getting the first Women's Clinic off the ground at Gallagher Fitness Resources. In July, 1998, she was here in Salem to help us celebrate the culmination of our inaugural Women's Clinic. She was a source of inspiration for us to continue offering the clinic to the women in the Willamette Valley. We are honored to have Kathrine back to help us celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Women's Clinic and invite you to join us in this celebration!
Jeanine Stice included the following reflection on Kathrine Switzer's visit in her Slice of Life Blog for the Statesman Journal.
Kelly Johnson, who co-writes the RunOregon Blog for OregonLive.com interviewed Kathrine Switzer this past week. Kathrine's answers to five thought-provoking questions about her running and professional career will appear this weekend (April 5, 6, 7). They are certainly worth a look! Her responses offer a glimpse of what you will hear when you join us on Wednesday, April 9th. See you there!
If you cannot join us on Wednesday evening, you can still have the opportunity to meet and speak with Kathrine Switzer at Gallagher's. Kathrine will be making in-store appearances and will be signing her books at the following times:
