Running quotes

If you need some motivation - here are my favorite running quotes:

"I’m no great runner, by any means. I’m at an ordinary – or perhaps more like mediocre – level. But that’s not the point. The point is whether or not I improved over yesterday. In long-distance running the only opponent you have to beat is yourself, the way you used to be." 
Haruki Murakami, 'What I Talk About When I Talk About Running '

"You have learned more about yourself in the past 26.2 miles than on any other single day in your life. Even if you can’t walk afterward, you have never been so free. A marathon finish is more than just something you earn; a marathon finisher is someone you become." 
Dean Karnazes, 50/50

"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
John Bingham

"To be strong in body and mind requires not only effort but also risk and the willingness to embrace a new mindset." 
Run Like A Girl, How Strong Women Make Happy lives

"The only race pace is a suicide pace and today looks like a good day to die"
Steve Prefontaine
