Quote of the day

From 7-time Boston Marathon champion Clarence DeMar...

"I can truly say that, aside from the Olympic junkets, the game had been worth it. Some people are born writers, that is, they may be good or bad writers, but they were born with something that makes them want to write. Some people are born competitors and need the stimulus of athletic competition. These people may have started out as baseball players and in later years transferred their efforts to golf. I happened to stick with one sport. I still enjoy the long grind of the marathon."

DeMar won his 7th Boston Marathon a few days shy of his 42nd birthday.
