    And of course the newscaster couldn’t just say there is a woman running the race. No, she’s a “leggy lady”.

    The year before that when Bobbi Gibb ran unofficially, Sports Illustrated of course said:

    “Last week a tidy-looking and pretty 23-year-old blonde named Roberta Gibb Bingay not only started but also covered the 26-mile, 385-yard course at a clip fast enough to finish ahead of no fewer than 290 of the event’s 415 starters.”

    Also:

    “Boston was unprepared for the shapely blonde housewife who came out of the bushes to crush male egos and steal the show from the Japanese”

    The idea of running long distance was always very questionable for women because, you know, an arduous activity would mean you were gonna get big legs, and grow a mustache, and get hair on your chest, and your uterus was going to fall out…

    … I’m suddenly very concerned for the uteruses of all the women I used to jog with. I hope they had some sort of reinforcing structure to keep that thing from wandering around.

    Yeah, I run over 1000 miles per year, and so far the uterus hasn’t made an appearance. I doubt that such an event would make me stop running, anyway. :)

    It was good to see Semple ” cross body-blocked” after what he tried to do Katherine. What a loon he must have been.

    I’d say ball chaff and sagging is much more of an issue than uterus-hanging. I used to be *raw* after 2 hours on inline skates in abrasive underpants.
