And if you are able to read...

Bowerman and the Men of Oregon.

It's a book about a legendary track coach and the birth of a company we all know: Nike. Even more, for me it has helped me remember a more innocent time in my life where amateur athletics and the Olympics were everything. It is a tour of 20th century history in the manner of Forrest Gump, but without the goofie bastard!

Sitting here I'm nostalgic for the days when the mile was king!

(That's right folks, the mile not the 100m steroid induced piss in a cup with laundry detergent to avoid detection dash.)
