I don’t think I’m a runner yet.
This guy was a runner.
I was thinking about being single-minded and how focus and natural ability and mental toughness can lead you to greatness.
Then I started thinking about something else.
I have seen this movie “Prefontaine” a couple of times and it’s pretty good….seek out a movie called “Without Limits” if you can find it or have any interest in it. It’s probably the better of the two movies that came out about the same time that told the Steve Prefontaine story.
This guy was like a rock star in the running community.
And from what I’ve heard, there were never any allegations of doping or any kind of performance enhancement…just a guy with a lot of ability and heart who loved to run.
There’s a hero for you.
