V 7 N. 47 Ted Haydon's Alibi Check List
Two posts the same day? Why not. This came from Ned Price, former U. of Chicago Track Club Member with Coach Ted Haydon's list of excuses for not running well. Here it is on the original mimeographed paper.
Ned claims he got beat by a junior high school kid but the kid went on to be a state champ in Indiana. So that's his excuse.
I know this is a true storyline, but it’s a riot. But Ted was a track guy and not a recreational runner. Sometimes even runners world will put in a check list like this for the ave runner. Are you kidding me. for us it’s not that critical. I think. The running life is the good life. but to a point. Mike W.
That's a pretty good list. I think I've heard at least half of them from runners (many from Barry Brown).
this is a handy list. where was it when i needed it?? Richard T.
