The greatest marathon of them all

Johnny Kelley, who won the Boston Marathon twice and ran it a record 61 times, died at age 97 last night (story).

I saw him run for many years when I was a kid, and I was always impressed. My grandad is only a little younger (he’s almost 91), and in my memory, my grandad has always had trouble walking.

Godspeed, Johnny!
