He is obviously one of Abe Lincoln's over the pond cousins. I appreciated he had lingering achilles issue so he was human, that his knee got bad but he rested it out (I am too impatient in this regard) that he got tired of dogs on certain routes (does not say he does not like dogs...as I do or don't whichever is correct...please do not hate me for that 'flaw' and I do appreciate nice dogs...all four of them in the world).
If you bother to read the article there are photos and its interesting to see him. He looks really ugly (like Lincoln) at first but after awhile not so much. He has a smile that makes me think of ole Scrooge after he woke up and was a nice guy.
By the way I know his secret. Halfway down or so there is a photo of a table of awards...to the left is the Holy Grail. It didn't prevent cancer or make him look better or younger but I guess it helped him run some incredible time both on the track and road. He had speed.
Long medium pace distance worked for him.
Sorry for violating my code of conduct and posting on your 'site'. :)
Ha! Anything goes on Attackpoint.
Ed has long been a hero... love his style. Laid back, simple training scheme, humorous.
Very sad how sudden his death was.
