Today, my friend Jenny, her kids and mine, all got to meet Bill Rodgers, multiple winner of many marathons, including winning the Boston and NY Marathons four times each between 1975 and 1980, twice breaking the American record with 2:09:55 and then 2:09:27! Bart Yasso is another great runner, and also the world's leader advocate of the sport of running, who has been working for Runner's World for decades, wrote My Life on the Run which has lots of terrific stories of his incredible running experiences! Bill and Bart were both so friendly and inspiring! They helped me to have a great race at the Cleveland Half Marathon!
