Frank Shorter -- "My Marathon"

Frank Shorter will speak about and sign his new book, My Marathon, on Tuesday, July 19th at 7:30pm at *First Congregational Church* (1128 Pine St).

About the Book:
My Marathon is a revealing memoir by Frank Shorter, the father of American distance running. After winning the 1969 NCAA title in the 10,000-meters title during his senior year at Yale, he went on to win a staggering 24 national titles on track, road, and cross country courses. At the 1972 Munich Games, Shorter won the Olympic marathon finishing more than 2 minutes ahead of the second-place finisher. Four years later, he finished a controversial second in the Olympic marathon in Montreal. The controversy, still unresolved to this day, revolved around the East German winner being a possible drug cheat. Shorter later founded the United States Anti-Doping Agency. Written with noted sportswriter John Brant, My Marathon is an inspiring memoir—a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit and the transformative power of sports. *Frank Shorter will be introduced by John Brant, and will be joined in conversation by Mike Sandrock from the Daily Camera*

Vouchers to attend are $10 and are good for $5 off My Marathon. Purchase tickets in advance at the store, over the phone, or at the door.
