I just finished reading a biography on Johnny A. Kelley, "the Elder", titled "Young at Heart." You can see my picture of his statue on Commonwealth Avenue in Newton, mile 19, on my blog's slide show.
He was an amazing runner to set the records he did in the time he was running. I am looking forward to challenging some of his race times at the Boston Marathon. Figuring he ran in a less-advantaged era it would lend in my favor.
Now, if I could only get rid of this cold virus. . .
