In The Maine Quality of Running, author Dick Goodie has collected the story of Maine running, runners, and races. The book covers the Maine running scene past and present, and presents some of the earliest and best runners, trend setters, and pace setters. Dick Goodie was born in Bangor, moved to Bucksport when he was 9, and at 19 landed on Omaha Beach with the Third Armored Division. He graduated from the University of Denver in 1951, and moved to Portland in 1954. He became involved in the Maine running scene in the late 1960s, and served 10 years as director of the Maine Masters’ Track Club. His activities as a runner, race director, and promoter of running contributed greatly to the sport, and he was cited in 1970 and 1972 for making outstanding contributions to Maine road running. Goodie was inducted into the Maine Running Hall of Fame in 1993.
