Woody Woodburn is an award winning newspaper columnist whose new book is called Wooden & Me: Life Lessons from My Two-Decade Friendship with the Legendary Coach. Woodburn took walks with UCLA’s legendary coach plus traded letters and phone calls with the Wizard of Westwood for over 20 years. What he learned from Coach Wooden also drove the former 2:58 marathoner to get back into running after nearly dying in a car crash. Since then he has put together a running streak where he has run at least three miles every day for over 10 ½ years.
