"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the Gift."
- Steve Prefontaine 

A little inspiration for you and me from "Pre."   Steve Prefontaine truly lived those words and made his running an art. Here's another good one.
"Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, 'I've never seen anyone run like that before.' It's more than just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative."
