Runner, Author, Motivational Speaker
Mr. Dick Beardsley will always be linked to one of the greatest Boston Marathon finishes in history. In 1982, Beardsley finished second in the prestigious race, just two seconds behind winner Alberto Salazar.
Retired from competitive running, Dick Beardsley continues to run marathons and other races despite a number of near fatal accidents which led to an addiction to pain killers. Beating that addiction and overcoming numerous injuries are just some of the stories that make Dick one of the more respected motivational and inspirational speakers today.
