A riveting, three-pronged narrative about the golden era of running in America-- the 1970s. Stracher tells the story of running during that golden period from 1972 to 1981 when Shorter, Rodgers, and Salazar captured the imagination of the American public as they passed their figurative baton from one to the other.
