Marathon Man: My 26.2-Mile Journey from Unknown Grad Student to the Top of the Running World  by Bill Rodgers

1/25/24 at (6:30 pm at Fred's) & 7:00pm - 8:00pm Book Club ZOOM session (see link below):

The Debs are thrilled to host the next book club with author, Olympian and former record holder in the marathon, Bill Rodgers via zoom (from Boston) - with the option of members meeting as a group at Fred's Restaurant (see below).

Rodgers is best known for his four victories in both the Boston Marathon, including three straight from 1978 to 1980, and 4 straight wins in the New York City Marathon, between 1976 and 1979. In 1975, Rodgers then burst into national prominence when he won the 1975 Boston Marathon in 2:09:55, setting a new American record. Rodgers won both the New York City Marathon and the Boston Marathon four times each between 1975 and 1980, twice breaking the American record at Boston with a time of 2:09:55 in 1975 and 2:09:27 in 1979. In 1977, he won the Fukuoka Marathon, making him the only runner ever to hold the championship of all three major marathons at the same time. He made the 1976 U.S. Olympic team and raced the marathon at the Montreal Olympics in 1976.
