In 2005, at ages 65 and 43, Dick and Rick finished their
24th Boston Marathon, in 5,083rd place out of more than
20,000 starters. Their best time? Two hours, 40 minutes in
1992 — only 35 minutes off the world record which happens
to be held by a guy who was not pushing another man in a
wheelchair. “No question about it,” Rick types.
“My dad is the Father of the Century.”
