Back in January, Frank Shorter (click HERE to learn more about him) was the keynote speaker at the annual Fort Wayne Track Club awards banquet. Accompanying him to the Summit City was author, John Brant - John is most commonly known for his long-time regular contributions to Runner's World magazine. He also wrote the well known non-fiction book "Duel in the Sun" detailing the life path of two runners, Dick Beardsley and Alberto Salazar. John was accompanying Frank on this whirlwind visit to Northern Indiana because he was doing research for a piece (not sure if it's going to be a book or an article) he was writing about Frank's life. My running mentor, "M", knew he would be meeting both Frank Shorter and also this author. "M" was very familiar with Frank, but read the book "Duel in the Sun" to learn more about John Brant. After he finished the book, "M" suggested that I might enjoy reading it as well. So . . . I did.
Given it's "Boston time" - this is a great gift for runners and readers alike (available used at amazon for $3.66, it's a bargain!!!).
