Quotes

Winning and Losing

"Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose." - Wilma Rudolph (Olympic gold-medalist sprinter)

Trying to Run Far

"There will be days when I don't know if I can run a marathon. There will be a lifetime knowing that I have." - Unknown

How fast to run?

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.” - Christopher McDougall, from Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

Keep moving...

“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” - Dean Karnazes
