You can quote me on that

About a month ago, I signed up to receive daily e-mails from Runner’s World magazine that contained running quotes. I thought I’d share some of them. Some of them you may have heard, while others are along the lines of “Why didn’t I think of that?”

“A lot of people run a race to see who’s the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts.” — Steve Prefontaine

“Pain is temporary, pride is forever.” — Anonymous

“I like running because it’s challenge. If you run hard, there’s the pain – and you’ve got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is ‘Don’t overdo it’ and ‘Don’t push yourself.’ Well, I think that’s a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond.” — Bob Clarke

“Running is real and relatively simple – but it ain’t easy.” — Mark Will-Weber

“Runners just do it – they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first.” — Nike

“The greatest pleasure in life is doing the things people say we cannot do.” — Walter Bagehot

“Run like hell and get the agony over with.” — Clarence DeMar

    David thanks for reading my blog. As you know I was on vacation so sorry for taking so long to respond. I’ll be adding your blog to my site as well. It’s nice to know that other folks are kind of going through the same stuff I am (although you are much more ahead in the game than I am).

    I am still in the 10 minute mile realm…I officially start my training program week after next so hopefully that’ll improve some.

    My wife is from the Richmond area and we both worked there for a few years before packing up and heading to WV. We both did our grad. work at VCU. So I’m a little familiar with the area, but what is the marathon course like? Lots of hills?

    I get those same quotes…they are great 🙂
