Like so many other athletics fans world-wide, I note with sadness the passing of Australian great Ron Clarke, who died earlier today of kidney failure at a private hospital on the Gold Coast, where Clarke had served as mayor from 2004 — 2012. He was 78.

In memoriam I re-post a column from November 2013 that featured Mr. Clarke.

“DON’T TRAIN TOO HARD, DON’T MAKE IT TOO EASY”

END
