Bill Rodgers Autograph

This evening I headed over to Vertical Runner after work to get an autograph from Bill Rodgers who was in town for this weekend's Akron Marathon. He was making an appearance at the store from 4-6pm. Bill Rodgers is one of America's greatest marathoners, winning the Boston and New York City marathon four times each between 1975 and 1980, and twice breaking the American record at Boston with a time of 2:09:55 in '75 and a 2:09:27 in '79.

The last time I met Bill was at the finish line of the 2006 Cleveland Marathon, a very windy day...
