Running and Writing: Keeping Pace and Taking Notes with Amby Burfoot
Manage episode 204787052 series 2125190
The 1968 Boston Marathon Champion reflects on his decades of contributions to the sport of running, as both a competitor and a writer.
Amby has seen many changes sweep through the sport of running since his first impressions of the Boston Marathon as a Wesleyan Student in 1965. He has experienced them as a competitor, and as a long time contributor and editor to Runner's World magazine.
He shares these observations with B.A.A. CEO Tom Grilk, just days before he takes on the 2018 Boston Marathon on the 50th anniversary of his win in 1968.
