This month we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and what better way than to feature some wallpaper that remembers Irish runner Eamonn “The Chairman of the Boards” Coghlan’s world record indoor mile run with a time of 3.52.6 in San Diego in 1979? He bested that record two times over the next four years, and that record stood until 1997. It’s still the second fastest indoor mile of all time and after 28 years, it’s still a European record.
An amazing competitor, particularly indoors, Eamonn Coghlan deserves to recognized not only for his awesome running feats, but also his work for the Children’s Medical & Research Foundation, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Dublin. Learn more about this Irish indoor running legend here.
