  • Running is a means of terrestrial locomotion allowing a human or an animal to move rapidly on foot. It is defined in human sporting terms as a gait in which at some point all feet are off the ground at the same time.
  • Long-distance track event races require runners to balance their energy. Because these types of races are very energy-consuming, one requires mental determination and aerobic conditioning, since stamina is a bigger factor than speed.

After running a sub-4 minute mile on Black Tuesday, September 3, 1974, Steve Prefontaine thanked his Pre-people fans for coming out to support him in light of the heavy smoke in the air
After running a sub-4 minute mile on Black Tuesday, September 3, 1974, Steve Prefontaine thanked his Pre-people fans for coming out to support him in light of the heavy smoke in the air
Pre is shown thanking about a thousand Eugene, Oregon fans who showed up just to watch him run a mile workout on September 3, 1974. Pre ran a 3:58.3 mile urged on by his fellow Oregon Track Club teammates. He was preparing for late-season races in Europe. There was nothing unusual about such a gathering--if Pre's people heard Pre was running, they were there. The photo is by Erik Hill. The training session drew Pre's fans by word of mouth--there was no publicity. Oregon runners Steve Bence, Dale Hammitt, and Mark Feig acted as fast pacesetters for Pre as he ran 59, 58, and 57 second laps going to the gun-lap. Mike Manley, who specialized in the steeplechase, ran the route with Pre, finishing in 4:07.3. "I've been training very hard this summer," said Pre over a loudspeaker following the run. "I know I'm ready. I hope to God my trip is more successful this time." In point of fact, Pre came in 3rd in the 5000m at Helsinki, with his Olympic rival Lasse Viren winning the race. Pre went on to the 2 mile in London, only to drop out before finishing. This was the only meet race Pre did not finish in his career. He reported torn stomach muscles and the lingering problems form the smoke inhalation at this training race. This day was later termed Black Tuesday due to the heavy smoke in the air from open field burn-off by area farmers, an annual event (notice how hazy the air is in the photo). The smoke was especially heavy that year. Pre said he experienced severe coughing and suffered muscle injury running the sub-four minute mile in the heavy smoke. He stated that the physical damage caused by the air pollution and lack of oxygen impaired his athletic performance for four months, leading to disappointing performance on his European tour. He attributed his physical problems to field burning "because I've never had these problems before." The 1973 Oregon legislature pass a ban on such open field burning effective January 1, 1975. When the farmers sought to have the law repealed, Pre and other Oregon Track Club members, including OTC runners and 1972 Olympians Kenny Moore and Mike Manley, joined others protesting such a repeal at a committee hearing in February 1975. The grass seed lobby prevailed and the proposed ban was defeated, just as an earlier ban supported by Republican Gov. Tom McCall had been. For decades, the practice has divided grass seed growers in the Willamette Valley, and residents in Eugene, Springfield and surrounding communities. Growers have relied on the practice to maintain seed purity, get rid of straw, pests and disease, and to improve yields. On June 30, 2009, the Oregon Legislature passed a ban on open field burning on the Willamette Valley floor. Except for some exempted areas east of Salem, the allowable acreage that can be open-burned was halved to 20,000 in 2009 and prohibited altogether in 2010. This follows a series if reductions in allowable burning from more than 250,000 acres a year in the 1980s to 40,000 acres in 1998, an amount that remained constant until this latest bill. The huge phase-down in the 1990s was prompted by a 1988 chain-reaction crash on Interstate 5 that killed seven people when smoke from an out-of-control field burn drifted onto the freeway in Linn County. Grass seed farmers can continue to open-field burn on 15,000 acres of certain steep-terrain areas of Marion and a small portion of Linn counties. Propane flaming and stack and pile burning is to be phased down before being banned in 2013. The bill ended an agricultural practice that since the 1940s helped produce a crop of worldwide renown, while bedeviling generations of residents who have struggled with respiratory ills made worse by the fine, airborne particulate produced by thousands of acres of burning straw and stubble. For decades, the practice has divided grass seed growers in the Willamette Valley, and residents in Eugene, Springfield and surrounding communities. Growers have relied on the practice to maintain seed purity, get rid of straw, pests and disease, and to improve yields. This description was based on articles in the Eugene Register-Guard, including the only newspaper anywhere of the race in the September 4, 1974 issue.
121/365: If you can fill the unforgiving minute | With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run - | Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, | And - which is more - you’ll be a Man, my son!
121/365: If you can fill the unforgiving minute | With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run - | Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, | And - which is more - you’ll be a Man, my son!
For TRP - Free Verse & TOTW - Motion If If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise; If you can dream - and not make dreams your master; If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with triumph and disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to broken, And stoop and build ‘em up with worn out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on’; If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch; If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run - Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And - which is more - you’ll be a Man, my son! Rudyard Kipling My father always used to quote this poem. We read it at his funeral.
