I was out in Colorado on vacation when I heard the news 4 years ago. Put on the running shoes and went outside, stumbling into a light jog to loosen up the legs. Once I got on an open stretch of road, I hammered a mile as hard as I was able. It was a not-so-blazing 5:28, but I tried my best for Pat.
Agreed. As a youngster I didn't know Pre then either, but I knew Pat Porter. He showed me that it's ok to be tall and skinny because you can still excel at a sport. He was very much a role model, and still very much missed.

Their name is Mud is my favorite Nike poster. Before I knew who Pre was I loved Pat Porter.
