1976 5K 2nd behind Viren...I remember him. 70 years old about the age of Ryan and Shorter...a lot of track legends were about 7 years older give or take a year. He had throat cancer. Every week someone is going down it seems.
Was watching stuff on Boston and Bill Rodgers yesterday as well as Shorter and of course Pre...Zatopek too. Home movie showed a lot of runners whose faces I recognized but could not always remember their name as they raced along...saw Tom Fleming...he passed away...gained weight but his daughter loves running and he coached a lot so he did stay around sport but I guess if he was not training to race he had no interest in jogging.
Hope the ribs continue to improve. Are you still a go for Grannies?
