Salazar and Beardsley on the "Duel in the Sun"

Here is Alberto Salazar and Dick Beardsley talking about the epic 1982 Boston Marathon now called "the Duel in the Sun" recently before the even hotter 2012 Boston Marathon. I am about halfway through Salazar's new book 14 minutes. Two excellent books on the this race are Duel in the Sun by John Brandt, who is in this video, and Dick Beardsley's book Staying the Course. This is a rolicking good video that had me chuckling with two stars of the sport shooting the breeze about their moment in the sun and their appreciation for each others racing and lives.

The story of how Dick Beardsley got his New Balance cap back is pretty awesome.

Here is a continuation continuation of the above video where Salalar and Beardsley give details of the race while watching a video that of the race that we can't see.

I am not sure if this is the exact video they were watching, but here you can see the epic race.
