I <3 TO RUN

For someone who runs all the time,

I still have the ability to make it

look like it's the first time I've ever

tried.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. Say you’re running and you think, ‘Man, this hurts, I can’t take it anymore. The ‘hurt’ part is an unavoidable reality, but whether or not you can stand anymore is up to the runner himself. [Haruki Murakami]
Run because wine

isn't calorie-free!
Ask me about my normal daily run, and the answer won't impress you. Tell me you run longer and faster, and I'll agree; most runners do. But try to tell me that my runs lack "quality" or, worse, are "junk miles," and you'll get an argument. Any run anyone wanted to take, and feels happy for having taken, is never wasted. [Joe Henderson]
Behind every fit and incredible 

woman is an even more

incredible sized pile 

of laundry.
Only a runner can understand the freedom one gets from logging a ton of miles.

Nothing messes up your Friday like

realizing it's only Tuesday!
All great performances, breakthroughs, and achievements are the result of some form of pain (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), adversity, sacrifice, and suffering. Yet the fun of full extension to reach one's goals makes it all worthwhile. Roger Bannister, the first person to run a four-minute mile, claimed that in 'the joy of going all out, I forgot my pain.' His necessary suffering was overshadowed by his pleasure in reaching his goal. For athletes to develop the desire to maximize their potential, their goals must be meaningful.
l like my morning run more than 

I like most people.
Running isn’t a sport for pretty boys…It’s about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. Its the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut. It’s about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead. It’s about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. [Paul Maurer]
You know you’re a runner when 

you make travel plans then turn it 

into a destination race.

Couples that run together...stay

together!
If you want to be a decent runner you must get out and run; the rest is just noise.

Get the running in first— that is the foundation. Then: Eat mostly good stuff. Get enough sleep. Stretch if you want to— or don’t. Lift if you like lifting. Cross-train if it makes you happy. Wear minimalist shoes or big bulky ones, whichever you prefer. Listen to music when you run, or not. You can carry water with you on a long run, or you can go without. If you want to do a core routine, then do it— but first you must get out and run.
