RIP Ed Whitlock

Very sad to learn of the passing of running legend Ed Whitlock at age 86 from prostate cancer.

It’s normal to idolize Ed for his running accomplishments, but I also idolized him because he seemed to be such a down-to-earth human being. I’ll miss following his exploits and good humor.

By way of tribute, here’s a post from last October, titled simply enough “Why We Love Ed Whitlock.”
