"Long-distance runners have to be very strange people. You have to really want to do it. You don't have to win or beat someone, you just have to get through the thing. That's the sense of victory. The sense of self-worth." —Ted Corbitt. The former Olympic long distance runner and University of Cincinnati graduate died last week from prostate and colon cancer. Corbitt, a pioneer of ultramarathon running, was 88.
