Weekly RunDown #84

“The one thing that you have, that is better than any gel, any drink, or any food, is something you’ve always had. It’s your mind and it can truly get you through anything.”
Dick Beardsley

A talk with Dick Beardsley about his race with Alberto Salazar at the 1982 Boston Marathon where he got second - a race often referred to as the "Duel in the Sun."  See video below on the race.

This is my Interview Tuesday interview with Kentucky and Master Runner Doug Lynch who not only does Ultras but does them while dealing with Crohn's Disease and Diabetes

Here is my race report on this years Yamacraw 50k held on April7th

One of the great stories out of this years Boston Marathon has to do with 2nd place in the women's race.  Sarah Sellers a nurse from Arizona who is unsponsored and paid the $180 entry fee toughed out the weather when many did not and won $75K for 2nd

Dr. Mark Cucuzzella's article on going for his 31st straight year of running a sub 3 hour marathon and doing it at Boston.  Sadly due to weather Mark did not go sub 3 hours but with the weather his 3:04:31 was a great run.

Dave McGillivray so as to run his 46th straight Boston and for the MR8 charity ran it at night after race directing all day.

Another Boston in the books and while the weather greatly affected the times which were far from fast it did not dampen the excitement and the pleasure of seeing two of my favorite runners win - Desi Linden and Yuki Kawauchi.

Here is a article on Why You Should Love Yuki Kawauchi
