RE: Once a Runner: Discussions, Quotations, Reflections
My favorite topic. This is of course my favorite book with so many great quotes. Good luck trying to write a paper on it though. I think what makes the book so great is the fact that is truly captures the essence of the sport, but as one of the above referenced passages states: how can you make someone who has never been there understand. You cannot explain to someone the joy of stretching out the planned 12 mile run into a 18 miler because you feel great, you cannot explain to someone the feeling of absolute oxygen debt in the last 400m of a race . . . actually I am about to start rambling on. At any rate good luck.
