Quote Of The Day
“I remember as if it were yesterday. I can also recall every step and that does not dim. I remember what the weather was like, who I was competing against, and even incidents in the race.”
“That day changed my life forever. Many times I thought it was the worst things I ever did, but for the most part it was the best thing I ever did.”
“I did not know I was capable of running this time in the marathon. I did not wear a watch and did not know what the record was.”
– Welshman Steve Jones talking about the 2:08:05 WR he set in Chicago 30 years ago. Even at mile 23, he had no idea he was on record pace. When he finished, he thought he might have set the course record, not the WR. The 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon is next week.
