RE: Once a Runner: Discussions, Quotations, Reflections
"When, after the countless flashes of cameras and the rude pushgin, the well-wishing and the endless questions (still wanting to know the Secret), after all of that he finally got away from them and talked with Bruce Denton quietly for a few moments, he pulled the zipper up all the way on the sweat top against the evening chill and steped out onto the track as those remaining in the bleachers roared. Quenton Cassidy looked up, gave a little smile and wave and thought: I have nowhere to go. It was then that Bruce Denton turned with a sigh and walked alone towards the gate, thinking that Quenton Cassidy's smile was sad indeed . . . "

With running and life, it is important to remember that the journey is what is important, once you have reached your goal, the journey is over and there is nowhere left to go. When I look back at my collegiate days, sure I fondly remember some of my races, but I never look back at how exciting the finish was or the final result, instead I think about how fun or terrible the race itself was. However, this is rare. 90% of the time I think of how much I loved those 100 degree track workouts with the guys on my team. Now as a lawyer, I don't think about how fun my graduation was (although I looked forward to it through law school), instead I remember the all-nighters I pulled learning the Parole Evidence rule. The lesson to be learned, enjoy the journey, once you reach your destination, you will miss the journey.

Hope that was relevant and made some sense.
