Pre: The Story of America's Greatest Running Legend, Steve Prefontaine by Tom Jordan. I bought this book to read while in the hospital for the birth of Seth and finished it on Seth's birthday but am just now sitting down to write a brief note about it.

What to say? Steve Prefontaine was the greatest american distance runner of his time and some would say of all time. In fact until recent years few Americans made a splash in the international scene. You can head over to and google his name to read more about him.

What I admire most about his story and what I thing I would have liked about him is that he had guts. When he raced he ran to win, he left it all out on the track.
