He Just Keeps on Going, and Going, and Going…


So what’s the second most sought after post on Ocular Fusion?

No big surprise here. It’s this one.

That Steve Prefontaine; he just keeps going, and going, and going…

By the way fellow shoe nerds, Nike now makes a full line of Prefontaine gear. You may not run like him, but by gosh, you can sure look like him.

    Has anyone noticed that Father’s Day is just around the corner?

    That’s not my SI cover, but I do have that one. If it weren’t for the ink mark on mine, it would be worth a good little chunk of change.

    My favorite Pre quote:

    “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.”

    I know I’ve talked in the past about not giving in to the Madison Avenue/Hallmark coalition, but Father’s Day is an exception.

    Wow – the veil has been lifted on my viewing activities. I’m guessing it’s temporary and will disappear again, but I’m here to enjoy now.

    Awesome SI cover. We actually watched the Prefontaine film w/ Jared Leto in it on the last day of the course I took earlier this semester. Incredible athlete, very tragic end to his life.

    Ed–glad that you’re seeing me clearly again. Hope it lasts.

    Laura–If you liked the one with Jared Leto, you’d love the one with Billy Crudup as Pre. It’s called Without Limits (here’s the Amazon link) and came out after Prefontaine. I think it tells the story more fully and artfully than the first movie, and Donald Sutherland as Bill Bowerman made the film for me. The scenes in the kitchen when he’s creating his first waffle sole using his wife’s waffle iron are very funny.

    my favorite pre qoute:

    the only good race pace is suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die.

    Eric, that’s a great one. Or how about: “Somebody may beat me, but they’re going to have to bleed to do it!”
