Prefontaine-lives, on racing
The scariest moment is always just before you start.
Renaud Lavillenie New World Record 6.16m at Donetsk Feb. 15, 2014
I knew he was gonna be the one to break that record even from the start. Congrats!
I’ll be happy if running and I can grow old together.
I love that you get what you put into it, that when you train hard you will see improvement. I love that even though its an individual sport you still feel to close to team mates and can relate to other people doing your event. I love how you race yourself, and always chasing a PR. The fact that getting a PR is better than winning a race. I love how you can push your limits whenever you want. I love that all you need is your body to compete.
I think some people are in love with the idea of track, they love to win and as long as they win they like the sport - as soon as they stop winning they will hate the sport. That is not true track love, true love for track comes from a passion to work till it hurts and to try harder every day in order to beat yourself.
