Monday Morning Motivation – Prefontaine

27 Apr

these streets

Are you going out for a run today? Where do you run? I don’t do a lot of off-road running as I tend to run straight from my house rather than driving somewhere to run.

One of my running heroes is Steve Prefontaine:

best pace

Pre was known for going out hard in a race, rather than waiting until the final lap before making a move: “I am going to work so that it’s a pure guts race. In the end, if it is, I’m the only one that can win it”.  There have been three films made about Steve Prefontaine.

Prefontaine (dir. Steve James, 1997)

Without Limits (dir. Robert Towne, 1998)

Fire on the Track (dir. Erich Lyttle, 1995)
