"If the word quit is part of your vocabulary, then the word finish is likely not."
"There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be."
"Runners just do it - they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first."
"Running is a big question mark that’s there each and every day. It asks you, ‘Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"
“A Runner must run with Dreams in his Heart.”
“Endurance? You’ve only got to get out there and do it. Face up to it: man was meant to run.”
"Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head."
"You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face."
"Ability is what you are capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."
If your going to run, Run Half Crazy
Good Luck to all you Saint Patrick Day Shamrock runners this weekend!
