I don't just go out there and run. I like to give people watching something exciting.
Something inside of me just said 'Hey, wait a minute, I want to beat him,' and I just took off.
The only good race pace is suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die.
A lot of people run to see who's the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts.
A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways they're capable of understanding.
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.
How does a kid from Coos Bay, with one leg longer than the other win races? All my life people have been telling me, 'Your too small Pre', 'Your not fast enough Pre', 'Give up your foolish dream Steve'. But they forgot something, I HAVE TO WIN.
