Boston Billy

A trifecta of superbity:

1. A terrific article

2. by the funny, exemplary Steve Rushin,

3. about the great, great distance runner (and Connecticut native), Bill Rodgers.

Read it here. (Oh, do read it. You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy it.)

[I’ve never met or run with Rodgers, but I was once thrashed by his college roommate and fellow Boston Marathon winner, Amby Burfoot, in a high school 2-mile championship race. I remember these career highpoints vividly.]
