In Bob Glover and Jack Shepherd's The Runner's Handbook (1977), Glover describes one of his races:

In the 1974 Boston Marathon, I was in agony and considered quitting when Californian Harry Cordellos passed me. On the back of his T-shirt were the words: "Caution, Blind Runner." I was so inspired I had to try and keep up. He pulled me through the race --- and beat me. But I finished.

I was watching TV today and the story of Harry was featured. He was the first blind runner to finish a full marathon under 3 hours and I think that was really inspiring. -- pld
