Legendary Runners posts from the past

Great article in this month's Running Times about former New Zealand runner Peter Snell which you can find at this link:
Peter Snell:  Gentleman, Athlete Scholar

I wrote about Peter and a few other legendary runners a few years ago.  You can find my list of the top 10 legendary runners at the following link.  They may not have been the best but I believe they were the most influential (scroll down for the top 10 list).

Great article. I might have found room to also include Jim Ryun for proving to the English Speaking world that Youth can train at a HIGH level of intensity, if properly coached, and achieve a lot. Remember, Ryun's greatest achievements in middle distance running came before he was 22.
