I was looking for a clip in one of the Steve Prefontaine Movies and couldn't find it. He got 4th in the 1972 Olympics in the 5000m and it always stuck with me what they said in the movie.

Pre didn't run to get 3rd place. He ran to get 1st Place.

Unfortunately he ended up falling to 4th against other extremely good runners but Steve Prefontaine had everyone's respect. His work ethic was unreal and for a distance runner to get that kind of notoriety is pretty unbelievable. Then on top of that there have been multiple movies made about him and people still talk about him to this day.

Famous Steve Prefontaine Quotes

"A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more."

"Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it."

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."

What Does This Have To Do With Crypto?

Let's be honest with ourselves, a lot of these altcoins are little shartnadoes that were just set up to make the founders rich. Let's use EOS as an example. Man I really thought they were going for #1 and to realize they just took most of the investor money and stacked Bitcoin is pretty disgusting to be honest. Sand bagging around like that doesn't earn my respect. There is no honor in that.
