Duel in the Sun: Alberto Salazar, Dick Beardsley, and America’s Greatest Marathon - A Book Recommendation / Review by Thomas O’Grady

This year’s Boston Marathon was hot and sunny. While many people struggled, the top runner Sisay Lemma ran aggressively from the start and finished in a very fast 2:06:17, besting the rest of the field by nearly a minute.
