Inhaltsangabe: Like so many young runners in Oregon, Scott Parker came of age under the spell of the Prefontaine legend, which inspired his early understanding of running's purpose as being centered around discipline and will power. In Running After Prefontaine, Parker traces his running back to its roots in Northeast Portland and follows it forward in time as his relationship with running evolves to include a more nuanced approach to the sport. Whether he's literally running in Pre's footsteps in Coos Bay or Eugene, running on the beaches of Asia, or running himself past exhaustion in Portland's Forest Park, Parker is an astute narrator of the running experience. This intimate book, which connects running to the author's process of self-becoming, demonstrates how what we do makes us who we are.
From the Back Cover:
Scott is a writer in the way he is a long-distance runner: highly conscious of space, of pacing and rhythm, and centered on his conviction to not just do well, but to do astonishingly well. The narrator of this compelling collection pushes himself to the very limits of his physical abilities, which allows the reader to move with him as he goes deep, and then deeper, into the musings of his mind. This isn't a book that will instruct you on how to be a runner, but more on how to be alive, thoughtful, and focused on a solitary pursuit that, when it isn't about to kill you, helps you understand who you are.
--Debra Gwartney, Live Through This
This book is as brave, hypnotic, and oddly absorbing as its subject. Parker is a shrewd and innovative young writer, and no one who runs or thinks about what it means to run can afford to miss what he has to say.
--Tom Bissell, The Father of All Things
Every runner will see something of their own running life in Scott Parker's Running After Prefontaine. And more than that, you will be inspired to think about the meaning of running has for your life. Parker tells great stories about his running, from his first marathon experience to training in the land of Prefontaine. This book is an enjoyable journey through the running life with all that it holds: pain, pleasure, disappointment, and joy, along with Vaseline and Band-Aids.
--Mike W. Austin, Running and Philosophy
