Joie Ray – Marvel of Stamina – Strength Magazine – January, 1924

Back in the year 1915, when the San Francisco Exposition was in full swing, the National Track and Field Championships were staged there, on a track that the late beloved Dad Moulton of Stanford had constructed. Now that track was about the fastest thing ever built. But it had one great disadvantage. It stood where the full breeze from the Pacific swept up and down its broad, level stretches. The runners had the wind with them, half of the time, but the other half t hey had to battle against it, and only the hardiest could stand up against its mighty force.
