With the off-season in full swing, it’s time to reminisce on 2018 with some of my favourite performances. One guy who I grew to love watching was @ronnie_baker14. Mr consistent always produced outstanding races and this was my favourite race when he went back-to-back in the @preclassic 💗🙌🏻👏🏻 —— #ronniebaker #consistent #impressive #fan #favourite #love #athlete #athletics #usa #prefontaineclassic #running #sprint #nike #sport #track #trackandfield #tracknation #success #reward #motivation #positivity #fit #muscles #strength (🎥 Vardan Sargsyan)
Throwback to the 2015 Prefontaine 🤸 I ran the 10K in 47:41 and took 3rd in my age group which was pretty rad! I won't be running this weekend but wanted to wish everyone who is good luck! Here are a few running tips for now as you taper down your training and start to load your muscles with carbs 👍 in preparation for race day Saturday! 1. Start hydrating now! -Proper hydration before your race sets the stage for optimal sport performance. Generous but not excessive amounts of fluids should be consumed in the 24 hrs before exercise. This will help to ensure you start your race well hydrated. 2. Don't eat anything out of the normal from now till your race! Stay consistent with your nutrition so you don't have any gastrointestinal issues prior to the event. 3. Carb loading -The 24 hours leading up to your race is a critical time for carbohydrate rich meals. Eating within this time frame will help you "top off" glycogen stores in the muscles and liver, allowing you to start your race with a full tank of "energy fuel". -In addition to carbs, proteins and fats are also important in the 24hr period prior to your race. By incorporating nutrient rich sources of carbs, proteins and fats, as an athlete, you will feel full and satiated and be less likely to over eat. 4. Get a GOOD night's sleep and wake up extra early so you can eat breakfast and 💩! Pooping before a race if possible is the best! Any gastrointestinal problems will certainly compromise your ability to perform at your potential 😉 5. This is a big race! Keep calm and collected but give it your all and have FUN! #prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #coosbay #running #runner #distancerunner #cardio #race #10k #training #trainingtips #raceday #prefontainememorialrun #oregon #pnw #runoregon #oregonrunning #amstraining
Run to be remembered.
“Last summer, before he was to leave for an important race against Brendan Foster in Europe, Pre ran a time‐trial mile in 3:58.3. Before he ran the mile, though, the smoke rolled in from the north, and it was just awful. After the race, Pre was coughing blood and tore a muscle in his diaphragm. It killed his races in Europe.” -Kenny Moore
A video I’ve been meaning to upload for a long time now is finally on my YouTube channel! - - Back in May of 2018 @caroline.mae42 and I went to Oregon to watch the #prefontaineclassic . There’s a two part film documenting our trip. Link is in the bio. You can also watch it on IGTV.
“It’s not about how long you live but how you contribute. It’s about doing your best and doing the right thing. It’s about recovering from your mistakes and not giving up. It’s about the baton pass to the new generation. It’s about the realization that you can not do it alone. It takes a team," Geoff Hollister. Prefontaine and Hollister worked together at Nike.

Repost from @flotrack , Brandon miller breaks the 1500 15-16 national record with a 3:58.1!

Steve was getting closer to the limits in ways that few ever do..
Hope all of you XC runners have been putting in the work this summer!
We all have our own running style, Pre’s was to get to the front and hold it as long as he could! #PreLives
“It really gets grim until the competition begins. You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.”
“The amazing thing about Pre was he was a hell of a student of the sport and he just loved digging and learning about things,” said Geoff Hollister, a runner who also competed at the University of Oregon under Bowerman and became Nike’s third employee.

“No one will ever win a 5,000-meter by running an easy two miles. Not against me.”

The famously known shirt! #StopPre
Pre took a STOP PRE tee shirt from someone in the stands and then enjoyed the time to sign autographs for the kids.

At the age of 19, Pre, then a freshman at the University of Oregon, appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Find your “why”. Why do you do what you do? If you know why you’re doing something it will give you the motivation you need to go further in whatever you want to accomplish! #PreLives ———————————————— “You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there.

These are some of the things located at the Steve Prefontaine Hall in the Nike World Headquarters! You can see some of Pre’s old running gear and his log where kept track of all his runs! #PreLives
#tbt to a couple months ago when @caroline.mae42 and I went to the #prefontaineclassic . Here’s a little preview of the #vlog . - 🎶 Frontlines x Feel Good x If I Loose Myself (@kyantewilson Mashup)
As a sophomore in high school, Pre failed to qualify for states. The failure only further motivated him. "I was really bitter," Prefontaine said of that summer. "Really angry with myself. I was sick. ... I flogged myself in practice. All I did was run. On the beach. In the hills."
Pre dons an ironic STOP PRE T-shirt after breaking the American record in the 5,000 meters at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. The mark would stand as a meet record (Pre would break his own record a year later) until Galen Rupp surpassed it during the 2012 trials.
Pre dominated domestic competition, but said his forays into international competition (like this meet in West Germany) proved to be a learning experience.
“Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.”
5000m 1972 Munich Olympics. —————————————— “Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.”
“There are big odds against me. Nobody under 25 has ever won the Olympic five. But if everything goes right, whoever wins will know he has been in one helluva race.”
“I like to make something beautiful when I run. It’s more than just a race, it’s style.”
Tony Waldrop and Steve Prefontaine fight for the lead in the indoor mile of the Los Angeles Times Indoor invitational meet, Feb 8, 1974--both would time under four minutes.
Race winner Steve Prefontaine with 2nd place finisher Finnish distance runner Rune Holmen, after both ran the 3000m in Madras, Oregon, May 4, 1975. This was the first meet of the five-meet Finnish Tour Pre arranged, ending with Pre's death after the fifth meet in Eugene, Oregon.
“Steve Prefontaine wins his fourth straight NCAA 3 Mile Championship at LSU. I see him going to the press tent and stick my program through the fence and ask for an autograph. He sees me and waves my dad (with camera) and me around the fence for the photo and an autograph. I was 12 at the time. The fact that an athlete of his stature would accommodate a kid moments after making history made such an impression on me. Pre tragically died just two years later.” -Harri Davidson •• #steveprefontaine #stoppre #gopre #prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #runner #running
A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways as they're capable of understanding. •• #steveprefontaine #stoppre #gopre #prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #runner #running
Pre easily wins with a distant gap as a Junior at Marshfield HS. A relaxed and confident finish is demonstrated as he crosses the finish line! #PreLives

Above is a photo of Steve Prefontaine. It was taken at Silke Field in Springfield, Oregon, on April 19, 1968. Prefontaine is a junior at Marshfield High School, and he’s just finished his fourth and final lap of the mile, which he completed in 4:23.4. He has yet to grow his signature mustache, but his almost-smiling face and confidence is familiar. •• #steveprefontaine #stoppre #gopre #prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #runner #running

Pre signing autographs for the kids! ————————————— “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 style. It's doing something better than everyone else. It's being creative.” -Pre
Jakob Ingebrigtsen is the 17-year old from Norwway that ran a 3:52 mile at the Prefontaine Classic. Today in Tampere, Finland at the U20 Championships he took 2nd in the 1500m in 3:41.89. Thanks Gary Morgan.
Что посмотреть? 🎬«Префонтейн»🎬 Биографическая драма о Стиве Префонтейне – легендарном американском бегуне на средние и длинные дистанции. Он внес значимый вклад в популяризацию бега в Америке в 1970-х годах, установил семь рекордов США на дистанциях от 2 до 10 тыс. метров. Трагическая история жизни великого спортсмена, включала в себя победы и горечь поражений, триумф и отчаяние. Стив Префонтейн умер в возрасте 25 лет, но успел прожить красочную и достойную жизнь победителя. Каждый старт для него был как последний, только так он стал тем, кем стал. Быть может и нам стоит взглянуть на неудачи и трудности его глазами? #кино #Префонтейн #бег #фильм #марафон #бегать #забег #спорт #кинофильм #Prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #ваш24 #пробежка #тренер #тренерпобегу #топфильм #киноклуб

It's not that easy being green; Having to spend each day the color of the leaves. When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold- or something much more colorful like that. It's not easy being green. It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things. And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water- or stars in the sky. But green's the color of Spring. And green can be cool and friendly-like. And green can be big like the ocean, or important like a mountain, or tall like a tree. When green is all there is to be It could make you wonder why, but why wonder? Why Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful! And I think it's what I want to be. #prefontaineclassic #ncaa #ncaatrackandfield #trackandfield #bowerman #ashtoneaton #oregon #oregonducks #picoftheday #eugeneoregon #portland #portlandoregon #coosbay #genius #philknight #tinkerhatfield #vinlananna #robertjohnson #michaelschill #picoftheday #instatravel #travelgram #tourism #instago #instapassport #postcardsfromtheworld #traveldeeper #travelstroke #usatrackandfield
PHIL KNIGHT vs HAYWARD FIELD - As athletes, coaches, fans and community, what we created, fought for, shared was a beautiful open process.
