Quote Of The Day
“This is, for me, finding myself again through running. I think I’ve found a balance. I’ve found I can do things in my life for reasons beyond just being successful. … I think back on why I didn’t run for so long. I didn’t want to have to deal with running slower. I didn’t want to have to deal with people saying, ‘Are you going to run this race? How fast are you running?’ Now I’m O.K. If I went out and ran nine-minute miles, I don’t have to prove myself to anybody. I’m 44.”
“… When you see people cross a half marathon finish line in 2 hours 45 minutes with tears in their eyes, you kind of get it. When I was 25, I didn’t get it. I really didn’t. I get it now.”
