Now He Really Was a Marathon Runner

Steve Jones approached his first Marathon, the 1983 America’s Marathon Chicago, with no planned splits, no watch, no special drinks and no apprehension. “Because to me the marathon was just about a long Sunday run and a hard 10K,” he relates. “You can’t fear anybody. You have to be confident of your own abilities. And also, be prepared to lay it out there.”

Excellent article on Steve Jones  http://runningtimes.com/Article.aspx?ArticleID=14678&PageNum=1


  1. Also, an equally excellent interview over at The Marathon Talk podcast. (Episodes 100 & 101) http://www.marathontalk.com/archive/podcast.php

  2. Bumped into Steve Jones at the 2007 Boston Marathon, the one they nearly cancelled because of the squalls. I asked Steve for some advice on tactics for running in such weather.

    "Wear a warm jacket."
