Interview with Gene Dykes
I had the opportunity to stay with Mr. Dykes and interview him before the Philadelphia Marathon. He ran the Liberty Bell Challenge -doing the half, 8k, and full marathon. He won his age group at each race.
The Philly Marathon was marathon number 123. He didn’t start running marathons until age 58!
