Vol. 2 No. 94 Phil Coppess, a Living Legend

Sarah Barker writing for the New York Times today recalls Phil Coppess who in 1985 set the record for the Twin Cities Marathon at 2hrs 10 minutes and 5 seconds .  It is still the record.   Phil was definitely a blue collar runner as Ms. Barker reports.   Our hats are off this gentleman who must have showed the way to a lot of high strung thorougbreds in those days.  Can anyone I.D. the runner next to Phil in the photo?
