I'm going to RUN with BILL RODGERS!!!

At Marx Running (a running store) in Acton, MA

There is no greater ambassador for the 
sport of running than Bill Rodgers:

Boston Billy!  

The legendary athlete who won the Boston Marathon four times...
inspiring the world's best runners for decades.

But Bill Rodgers is more than a legend.

He's a big-hearted, warm guy who loves running, and runners, 
and is genuinely interested in the odd paths
 that have drawn so many of us to this sport.


In 2007 I had the great pleasure of chatting with Bill 
before I ran my first Boston...

...a pleasure I enjoyed again last year when 
we chatted at a running store in Acton, MA.  


But tomorrow I'll do something even better!

I will RUN with Bill.

Yes!  I will join other runners at the
2014 Bill Rodgers Theatre III Valentine Road Race 5k.

The race starts at 11 AM in Acton, MA--
a scenic town about 40 minutes west of Boston.

Boston Billy will pin on a bib number 
and run this 5K with all the rest of us.

What a thrill!

Tomorrow the weather will be ideal.  

I'll be there.  
A whole lot of other runners will be there.  
And we'll all get to run with BILL RODGERS!!!

For more about the race, see the race web site.

Hope to see you there!
