Quote Of The Day
“I always ran when I played. Before games. After games. Didn’t matter. I just felt a need to stay in top condition. I used to run at least one or two miles, up on the second level of the Boston Garden. I enjoyed it. No matter what, if I got a good run in before practice, I felt like I accomplished something that day. In practice we could run for two hours, but I still didn’t get the feeling I did when I went outside for a couple of miles.”
“In middle school, my basketball coach would have us run a mile around the top of the gym. I didn’t enjoy it, but it was the first time I got that feeling you get after a run. You can ride a bike, climb rocks, but that feeling after a run is one of the greatest you can have – other than winning a big basketball game. … I always felt that if I didn’t get a run in, I didn’t feel good that day. I think a lot of runners feel that way.”
