article imageReview: Linda Prefontaine pens inspirational 'Pre Log – Running Log' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 27, 2019 in Sports
Linda Prefontaine, the sister of the late track and field legend Steve Prefontaine, penned "The Pre Log," a runner's journal that is an asset for all novice and advanced runners, and track and field athletes.
Linda noted that a journal is an efficient way to monitor one's progress towards achieving goals, especially lofty ones. What makes it even more compelling is that she has included pages from her late brother, Steve's actual journals and logs, which gives readers and fans a glimpse of what his intense workouts entailed.
She also included quotes from her late brother, as well as the other people in his life that knew Steve the best such as Coach Walt McClure, Phil Pursian, Ron Apling, and Tom Huggins, among others.
It is definitely inspirational since it is full of tips and insights on how one can improve their running skills and enhance their drive and motivations in life; moreover, the photographs in the book, especially those of Coos Bay, Oregon, and the archive images of Steve, help bring the book to life even more. If anybody is every down, this book is a great source to refer to, since it can easily help boost one's self-esteem.
