Runners World Quote of the Day (AKA Kick in the Butt!)

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.

    Steve Prefontaine was just a super runner... the passion he had for it amazes me! And his story reminds me a lot of my son. Pre ran because he got picked on because of his size (he was too small for football, etc....)

    Have you seen either of the movies made about him? Both really good. I have "Prefontaine" on DVD and want to get "Without Limits"

    Even though he never won a medal at the Olympics, he's still one of the greatest in my opinion.
