Bill Rodgers Running Boston

In the media circles I follow, there is a general buzz about Bill Rodgers running Boston this Monday.  Bill is a great guy and one of my true heroes.  He will talk and have a beer with you, as you can see by the photo above from the 2003 Boilermaker 15K.  I make an almost annual trip to the Boilermaker 15K with people from my running club .  At that venue, Bill is always approachable and will talk with you about anything as if he has done a hundred miles of running with you.  He gave tons of advice about how to run the course to one of my friends last year.  Here is a cool video of his 1979 win at Boston.  Gotta love the hat!
