Read this book and find out why, or read this book and feel all warm & fuzzy like. The man has had quite a life.
The quotable Tommy:
". . . Tommy Leonard, the running guru at the Eliot Lounge talking in a TV interview about the particular appeal of the Boston Marathon: "It's better than sex."
Tommy got some strange looks from folk's after that one.
A great book to enjoy over the Holidays!

I agree completely with Jack Kearney, former WBCN radio exec, who wrote in Cleary's guest book: "Cleary has...out-Damoned Damon Runyon with her colorful bio of Tommy Leonard. The book transcends running and has wide market appeal. I liken it to a nice 'Angela's Ashes.'"
