Quote of the Day
Steve Prefontaine Quotes
To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift.
A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.
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.
Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.
I'm going to work so that it's a pure guts race at the end, and if it is, I am the only one who can win it.
Something inside of me just said 'Hey, wait a minute, I want to beat him,' and I just took off.
I run to see who has the most guts.
Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and 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.
What I want is to be number one.
A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways they're capable of understanding.
How does a kid from Coos Bay, with one leg longer than the other win races?
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.
