Quote Of The Day
“There is something inside me, inside my body or mind. Maybe it’s from God and I was born with this, but I’m a big fighter. I never quit the race before the finish. We don’t train for it, but it’s something inside. … Running is painful, and the last lap is very painful, so I close my eyes and say: the faster you run the shorter the amount of time you’ll be in pain. I love the finish. It’s my biggest strength. … The pain is always there, but like Zatopek said: if you are dying, you have to push.”
