You may know Malcolm Gladwell as the eccentric, library bound, author and writer for The New Yorker, but you may not know of his love for and life-long dedication to running.*
He recently wrote and served as narrator for a series of short films promoting the Boston-based Tracksmith running company. Videographers who follow The Laurel may be interested in watching from the perspective of the director, Emily Maye.
At 57, Gladwell recently ran a 5:15 mile you can find out more about on the internet. (According to the AP stylebook, internet is no longer capitalized).
*This qualifies as a Laurel story on the grounds of general journalistic interest and because it is believed Gladwell has probably driven through Connecticut on multiple occasions.
