Thursday Thirteen


  1. I’ve learned that it’s what you do with your miles, rather than how many you’ve run.
    Rod Dehaven
  2. The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.
    Roger Bannister

  3. Passion is pushing myself when there is no one else around – just me and the road.
    Ryan Shay

  4. Running is the classical road to self-consciousness, self-awareness, and self-reliance.
    Noel Carrol

  5. How would you describe the worst run you ever had? Precious!
    Hal Higdon

  6. Putting miles in your training log is like putting money in the bank. You begin to draw interest on it immediately.
    Hal Higdon

  7. The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.
    Jesse Owens

  8. Running well is a matter of having the patience to persevere when we are tired and not expecting instant results. Robert de Castella
  9. Experience has taught me how important it is to just keep going, focusing on running fast and relaxed. Eventually [pain] passes and the flow returns. It’s part of racing.

  10. Believe you can do it. Think no other way but “Yes you can.” The human body is capable of considerably more physical endurance than most of us realize. Paul Reese
  11. I don’t worry about what I’ve run. I worry about what I’m going to run. To be successful, you’ve got to keep moving.
    Rae Baymiller

  12. I’m not sure that I can describe what has been called the “runner’s high,” but like poetry and beauty, I know it when I experience it.
    Matthew Shafner

  13. It’s not about how fast you go. It’s not about how far you go. It’s a process.
    Amby Burfoot, The Runner’s Guide to the Meaning of Life
