Staying the Course

I love used book stores. Actually, I love all book stores, but the used ones fit my budget better. I was lucky enough to find an autographed copy of Dick Beardsley's memoir recently. I was familiar with his name because of the "Duel in the Sun" which is one of the most exciting marathon finishes I have ever seen. It's like "Hoosiers" Even though I know who wins, I'm still anxious for the outcome. Here's the last two miles for you.

I loved that the book wasn't just about his running. In fact about half the book was about how his life was anything but idyllic after his retirement from racing. It's a good story of overcoming adversity and how running can be a source of strength.
