Bill won the Boston Marathon 46 years ago (in 1975) he broke the Boston record, the American record and it was the first sub two hour and ten minute time 2: 09:55 run at Boston. It was a race that when you look back at how he ran, nobody was going to beat him he stopped for water and to tie his shoes, which were Nike racing shoes that he got in the mail a week before the race from Steve Prefontaine. The shoes were a bit large and he would have to stop and tie them up for better support.
