I tried to start a blogger spot to write about running, but I'm too faithful to LJ.

"You don’t race anything longer than a half marathon for health and fitness. You run it for your soul."
- Unknown

"You have to forget your last marathon before you try another. Your mind can't know what's coming."
- Frank Shorter

“Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it."
- Oprah Winfrey

"There is the truth about the marathon and very few of you have written the truth. Even if I explain to you, you'll never understand it, you're outside of it."
- Douglas Wakiihuri

"We are different, in essence, from other men. If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon."
- Emil Zatopek

"You'll learn more about a road by traveling it than by consulting all the maps in the world. "
- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

"To describe the agony of a marathon to someone who's never run it is like trying to explain color to someone who was born blind."
- Jerome Drayton

"Marathoning is like cutting yourself unexpectedly. You dip into the pain so gradually that the damage is done before you are aware of it. Unfortunately, when awareness comes, it is excruciating."
- John Farrington
