Mr. Rodgers loved the colder weather for racing.
Interestingly enough, he once said that it would be a plus for him if the Olympic Marathon was part of the Winter Olympic Games instead of the Summer Olympic Games.
I agree. I was being slightly sarcastic because of the weather that day and the way everyone is currently complaining about Monday before it even gets here.
If there's a slight headwind without hurricane type gusts, just race and let the cards fall where they fall.
I was there in 1982 as well, it was "hot feeling" to many who had came from a solid cold and snowy winter in the midwest. I was sun burned as there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
