Dick Beardsley once held the Grandma’s Marathon Record. It was broken a couple of years ago. He’s very proud of that, and if you stop him and ask him to talk about the first few Grandma’s Marathons, or his race in the Boston Marathon, he will be happy to tell the story. He is a bundle of energy and is never lacking in enthusiasm for running and sharing his experiences.

I was able to sit down with him and pick his brain about what makes Grandma’s so exciting to him and see if he can predict what will happen this year.
