When Bobbi Gibb saw the Boston Marathon her mind was set—she had to be a part of it. She trained hard, journeying across America to run on all kinds of terrain. But when the time came to apply for the marathon, she was refused entry. They told her girls don’t run, girls can’t run. That didn’t stop Bobbi. Created in collaboration with Bobbi Gibb, this book tells the true story of how she broke the rules in 1966 and how her grit and determination changed the world.
