I've lived and worked since 1977 in Steve Prefontaine's hometown. I know several people who ran cross-country and track with him in high school. Also, between business, college classes, and kids in high school sports events, I've worn a path between here and Eugene to where I could about make the drive in my sleep. All those trips, and although I've heard about it many times I've never seen the memorial to Steve Prefontaine in Eugene, at the site of his tragic car accident. We went up yesterday for my follow-up appointment with the hip surgeon, and drove up to see the spot. It's pretty touching.
