I ran that day. Headwind indeed, cold and wet, we just ran back then no matter Mother Nature threw at us. Bill was incredible that day in those conditions, 4:56 per mile!
Also ran that day. I don't remember the wind being an issue. Cold and wet wasn't bad at all=PR day. After the race in the garage was another matter=way too cold, especially without dry clothes.
Yeah, I ran too. There was surely a headwind and you can hear Larry talk about it on the video. I was 19, which you had to be back then and pr'd as well, but they conditions were not ideal as the cold rain easily cramps up the legs. It could have been worse, but it could have been better. As the OP said, we just ran!
