Rosie Ruiz Caught on Video!

I was there at the 1980 Boston Marathon with my handy Super 8 millimeter video camera and caught Rosie Ruiz, arms flailing, about 1/2 mile or so from the finish- she is wearing a heavy, yellow t-shirt. As far as I know, this is the only record of Rosie actually running the race outside of the finish.

Following is a clip of Alberto Salazar's victory at the NCAA cross country national championships in Madison, Wisconsin.
