Three into 2 miles who go, go, go

The article focuses on Rudy Chapa, Tim Keough, and Carey Pinkowski, students at Hammond High School in Indiana who have broken records by running two miles under nine minutes in 1975. The young men's training regimen includes running more than 100 miles each week in all kinds of weather. According to coach Dan Candiano, the stress that his runners undergo while practicing running in the city streets improves their performance. The author observes how the competitiveness of the young men has prevented them from becoming close friends.
