Learning From the Greats — Bill Rodgers

The marathon man…Bill Rodgers is one of my all-time favorite marathoners. My wife got me his book a few years ago for a Christmas present and I could not put it down.

His approach was simple. He just got out and ran…twice per day…every day. When he felt good, he ran hard. When he didn’t, he ran easy. And he raced often. And he raced hard.

This is a very simple sport…and we seem to always over-complicate things. Bill Rodgers teaches us to keep it simple and just run.
