Learning From the Greats — Bill Squires

The long run is what puts the tiger in the cat. 

— Bill Squires

Bill Squires is one of my favorite distance coaches…his book Speed With Endurance is one of my training go-to’s. During the 1970’s Squires, much like Lydiard, led a small contingency of men who were dominating the marathon scene; most notably of his chargers was Bill Rodgers.

For me, I really believe in the long run, and frequently refer to this quote to my own charges as we approach the long run each week!
