Bill Rodgers was out at the Jax River Run this year autographing pics and books. He spent a ton of time answering questions and giving tips about Jax and Boston. Very down to earth, approachable, and fun to talk to. Can't wait to visit the Bill Rodgers Running Center in Faneuil Hall when I get to Boston in 2011.
