Longtime Grandma's Marathon record-holder Dick Beardsley joins the podcast to talk about a variety of topics, all stemming from his love of running.
Beardsley touches on his inauspicious start in the sport, the year his Grandma's record was beaten by Dominic Ondoro, and his "Duel in the Sun" with Alberto Salazar at the 1981 Boston Marathon.
He also dives into more serious things, including speaking of his one-time narcotics addiction and the death of his son, Andy.
Race announcer Peter Graves hosts this first-ever "Gearing Up for Grandma's" podcast, which is brought to you by Essentia Health. Grandma's Marathon is proudly presented by Toyota, Members Cooperative Credit Union, and ASICS.
