Steve Prefontaine Would Be Only 60 Today

Wow: Oregon running legend Steve Prefontaine would be turning only 60 years old today.  He was born on this day in 1951 and died in a car crash after a race at age 24.

That seems like a long time ago.  But “Pre” was born the same year as last year’s Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, British PM Gordon Brown, musician Sting and hero pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger

A great Oregonian. Wish he was still running.
