My Dad Looked Like Pre

January 20, 2010

My Dad (Cleveland Marathon, circa 1978):

Steve “Pre” Prefontaine:

Just saying. Maybe it’s just the 70s pornstache, but the similarity is uncanny.

I have a quote on my desk by Pre that says “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” Do you think he was talking about mustache-growing skills? Because both my Dad and Pre lived up to that (my Dad still does).

      It’s in Mom’s morning room on her little picture board. And it cracks me up every time I see it.
