    Re: 2019 In Memoriam Thread

    In the "long forgotten" category, Rosie Ruiz - who "won" the Boston Marathon by cheating and was stripped of her win - has died at 66.

    Her interview after "winning" was unforgettable."


    "What are intervals?"
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    Me, neither.

    I don't even recall hearing about it AT THE TIME, but that might be because that was the same week that the hostage rescue mission failed, and it's not like I was into running (and we didn't yet have ESPN).

    I first heard about it when I got a book commemorating the decade of the 80s in sports, and they featured it prominently.

    I got more details a few years later when I actually saw the HBO "Not So Great Moments In Sports" video that featured it as well.

    my parents were both runners so i grew up paying attention to the boston and new york marathons every year.
