Sharing Joe Henderson’s Running Commentary

2 Comments October 13, 2007 / Posted in The Running Mind

Just wanted to share with you someone that I consider a dear friend.

Joe is someone I remember reading in the mid-70’s when I first began to run. He took me through LSD (Long Slow Distance), has been a companion in my thoughts and reflections, and remains one of those people I champion because of his spirit, his energy, his integrity, his willingness to share, and the fact that he continues to run and write, and write and run.

I look forward to reading his book-in-progress, Home Runs, as he shares his own road less traveled.

You will find so much in his archives that will inspire, give you fuel for thought and reflection, and miles of your own running and walking to ponder your own journey and Odyssey.

    Hello Ozzie – I sat with Joe at the Mission Bay Marathon spaghetti dinner in 1979, maybe 1980. I have admired his writings for a long time. Have been living in Eugene – where Joe lives, for the last four years. I love it.

    Hope all is well with you and Kip (aka Janet) and the girls. I think often of our running times together and the IAM friends. All the best, Ed
