Inspiration from Steve Prefontaine--Why we run

  • "You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."

Re: Inspiration from Steve Prefontaine--Why we run

Great quote.   My favorite Pre quote is "some people create with words or music or with paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run.  I like to make people stop and say "I've never seen anyone run like that before." It's more than just a race, it's a style.  It's doing something better than anyone else.  It's being creative. "

 

My my favorite sports quote is by Ray Lewis "I'm pissed off for greatness. Cause if you ain't pissed off for greatness, that means you're okay with being mediocre."

I am simply partial to Yoda - do or do not - there is no try.  I also think Pre was an advocate for the joy of running coupled with the passion to move past our limits.  I think this whole idea is lost on many runners today.
