Friday we did a story on the 50th anniversary of Jim Ryun setting the world record in the mile inside BC's Memorial Stadium.

ICYMI: 50 year anniversary of Jim Ryun setting mile world record at BC's Memorial Stadium

 While we couldn't get him in the story, after the story ran he called us to talk about what he remembers from the night. 

He said he hopes to someday get back inside the stadium!
