The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.
If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run
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?
What distinguishes those of us at the starting line from those of us on the couch is that we learn through running to take what the days gives us, what our body will allow us, and what our will can tolerate
If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise
My therapist is the pavement. My drug is endorphins. My foe is the next hill. I am a runner.
My lunch hours aren't for eating, my Saturday mornings aren't for sleeping, and my holidays aren't for taking it easy. I am a runner
