Carallyn Bowes runs across canada

Aug 26th, 1976 — The first woman to run across Canada, Carallyn Bowes, arrives at Second Beach in Stanley Park, Vancouver, 133 days and 3,840 miles after leaving Halifax, Nova Scotia. She wore out 13 pairs of running shoes on the trip. At one time Carallyn Bowes was an entry in Wikipedia but it was removed because this was the only thing she ever did that was noteworthy. Picky, picky, picky.
