“[Steve Prefontaine] just wanted it more. He wasn’t afraid to lead. If he wanted to win it, he was gonna win it.”

“What do you love about running?”

“It’s just so much fun, and you get to meet a bunch of really great people, and it’s a great community.”

“What’s the best piece of running advice you’ve ever received?”

“Run your own race.”

“As for the teams we’re facing, just go and get them. Be better than them.”

“Do you remember what got you into running?”

“When I was younger, I had a really mean, bad baseball coach. He made me end up quitting that sport, and my sister ran, and I said, Well, I don’t want to deal with him as a coach, so I might as well try something else. That’s what got me into running. So if it wasn’t for that guy being the way he was, I wouldn’t have gotten into running.”
