I'm sure many of you will enjoy this along with another link within that article to a Sports Illustrated about the Hungarians.
Late last year we also published an original piece about Leslie Hegedus, an American Hungarian who was also a part of this era and was a very good runner under the influence of another good Hungarian coach Julius Penzes.
Now on to Rich Elliot's two books.
I recently purchased Runners on Running, the Best Nonfiction of Distance Running with contributions by Kenny Moore, Don Kardong, Kathrine Switzer, Hal Higdon, Amby Burfoot, Marc Bloom and others. I can strongly recommend this work. And Rich has done a great job putting all this work together in a meaningful order.
Rich's other book which I have not yet seen is The Competitive Edge about psychological preparation to compete.
