You want inspiration…read this book. Steve Prefontaine or as fans call him Pre was one of the most famous athletes of the early 1970s and well on his way to becoming more than an athlete but an activist who would made a real impact on the world before his untimely death just prior to the summer games of 1974. Trust me read this book and you’ll become a Pre fan, a Pre historian, & you’ll lace up your shoes and want to go on a jog. I’ll leave you with his quote, that will make you want to pick up this book and learn more,
“To give anything less than your best is a sacrifice to the gift!” – Steve Prefontaine

p.s. as far as Pre movie’s go
Without Limits & Prefontaine – both based on Pre’s life and came out within a year of each other. I like Without Limits better but they are both enjoyable.
Fire On the Track – is a Pre documentary with real footage which is a must see
