RE: ARTHUR LYDIARD OR JACK DANIELS?
Gerry was one of my 26 subjects used in my dissertation research, so I did test him numerous times -- at sea level and at altitude. Gerry and Ron Clarke were two of the most memorable runners I have tested, Lindgren because of his personality (I have always enjoyed his humor -- he would often lean as he went by the finish line of each lap of a test on the track, as if it was the finish, even if he had 3 more laps to go) and Clarke because of his near fear of wearing the necessary equipment and his unbelievable talent (3:03 for the last 1200 meters of a max test on the track -- running beside the car and with the nose clip and head gear on -- still a record under those conditions). I feel so very fortunate to have been able to spend time with so many great runners over the years -- you get to know them differently when the relationship is non-competitive and there is nothing to hide from each other. Honesty is at its highest level.
