Runner Dick Beardsley will speak from noon to 1 p.m. Friday at the Brainerd Public Library as part of the "Brown Bag Lunch" summer speakers' series.
Beardsley recently published his biography, "Staying the Course: A Runner's Toughest Race," with Maureen Anderson. His book tells of his experience running the Boston Marathon in 1982 and the aftermath in the years that followed.
