It’s like I can feel cross country waiting to give me a painful greeting slap on the back and then a giant hug.

The original notes used by Steve Prefontaine to deliver the keynote address at a banquet held in Eugene, Oregon in November, 1974. The banquet was held the night prior to the 1974 National Junior College Cross Country Championships. The notes are in Pre’s own handwriting and give an excellent incite as to Steve’s thoughts about the sport of cross country running.

I didn’t start running until way beyond high school or college, so I never heard to Prefontaine until these past few months. He was pretty amazing and insightful.

I’ve had better conversations with complete strangers at the finish line than I’ve had with most the people in my grade.
