1964 Boston Marathon Footage


I just came across this 26 minute documentary film on the 1964 Boston Marathon on Running Warehouse’s blog, which is simply amazing from a runnerd perspective.  Although I haven’t yet watched the whole thing through, but I can’t imagine anyone in the film can beat the Reverend Shannon, who ran the race 14 times but couldn’t compete that year with an official bib because he lost his amateur status after competing as a professional boxer.  The good reverend has a few interesting training techniques including:

The Back Wiggle

And The Stomach Bounce.

I won’t spoil the rest of the fun, here’s the movie in its entirety!

    The initial walkthrough is where you will do the majority of
    the legwork for the rehab. If you ever make a mistake in your plumbing system, it can be expensive to put right.
    The typical tenant appears at more than 6 properties prior to
    they make a choice, so shooting this video clip can save you
    quite a little bit of time when dealing with possible
    tenants that just want to consider a look, but are not all
    set to make a choice.
