IMG_20161011_164100.jpgBRISTOL, TN/VA — Every running story has a beginning and mine starts on a softball field at a high school softball game. I am at bat and waiting anxiously for the pitch. I hit it. I mean not just one of those hits that goes to the infield and is a quick out. I mean a hit that goes out to the fence and the crowd cheers! I start hustling towards first base and my legs are pounding the soft dirt as hard as they can but the throw from the outfield still beats me to first base.

The truth is this: Steve Prefontaine was a fun loving, highly talented, highly motivated and creative young adult when he died. No one knows what he would have become, but there is a good chance he would have improved his American records from 2000m to 10,000m and, perhaps, helped change the sport. In American track & field, Steve Prefontaine was colorful and quotable. His gutty running, his obvious love of his sport and competition made him a figure of prominence.
