Steve Prefontaine was the catalyst for the American “jogging movement” in the 1970’s.
He was literally unbeatable and held every American running record (indoors and outdoors) from 1,000 meters to the 5,000).
An opposing team created t-shirts that said, “Stop Pre”.
It didn’t work.
He was a rebel who also happened to be a runner. That’s a story for a Google search in your spare time.
RIP Steve: May 30, 1975 (car accident). He was 24.
