Hi! Happy Friday! This week, we celebrated Steve Prefontaine’s birthday. He would have celebrated 55 years!

I can’t imagine what the running scene would have looked like if he was still around. What records would he have set? Would he be coaching? If he was coaching, what records would his people have set? 

Even though he lived a very short life, I feel like Steve Prefontaine left a HUGE impact on the running community. He was a super star with an immense amount of talent, and one of the things I like to do for a boost of inspiration, is read through his quotes. 

So, today, I am joining up with Courtney @ Eat Pray Run DC to share my five favorite Steve Prefontaine quotes.
