recently ran across this old
photo of J.D. talking to Shane Slovacek, a quartermiler.
It was taken in 1968 or 69. Gary Lower is in the background.
Your mentioning Mihaly Igloi brings back some memories. In the summer of 1970,
while visiting in L.A., I ran a couple of workouts with Igloi's team on the wide
median of San Vicente Blvd in Santa Monica. Rick Carr a miler for USC had gone
to high school in Lawton before moving back to California (his big brother, Dennis
Carr, who once held the national prep record for the 880 at 1:48.8) and Rick
was being coached by Igloi at the time. One workout was something like 30 quarters
with a 220 jog between, and it killed my legs.
