Somewhere amidst all that Randy Sharer ’81 does as a sports writer for The Pantagraph, he found time to write the biography of Craig Virgin, an Illinois native who became a two-time world cross country champion and three-time Olympian.
The 322-page book, titled “Virgin Territory: The Story of Craig Virgin, America’s Renaissance Runner” is available now in hardcover, softcover and e-book.
It took a while, eight years in fact, but the finished product is, according to an article by Randy Kindred, a “testament to organization, dedication, time management and a deep-rooted love for running.”
