I sure hope that you were able to watch the Nike Pre Classic. Named in memory of the late Steve Prefontaine, the meet provides a legacy that would have made Pre happy. He loved track & field, and he liked the pursuit of challenges. Prefontaine was the most serious athlete you have ever met and the center of the party as well. America loved Prefontaine as he was a rock star, Olympic athlete, and colorful. He was, well, a character. Yet, he did things few people knew. He visited a state penitentiary to help inmates run and get their acts together. Few knew about that until after his death. No one should die at the age of 24, but Pre did, and his brutal frankness, his whimsicalness, his desire to be challenged all out has kept the whispering in our ears since May 30, 1975, "Do you have anything left? Is there anything more that you can give?"
