haha- some great quotes:
"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle--when the sun comes up, you'd better be running." - Sir Roger Bannister, 4 min mile.
"In terms of stress relief and sensual pleasure, running is what you have in your life before you have sex. The equipment and desire come factory installed...." - McDougall, Born To Run
I just started the book BORN TO RUN by Christopher McDougall and love it! This weekend is my first half marathon of 2010- the Miami ING marathon. I have been knocking out the miles for two weeks since I registered. With a 10 miler Tuesday morning before work. Living a crazy lifestyle like this keeps me motivated! Yes, weekends are a great time for distance runs- but why the hell not any day I choose?
Its an empowering thing to run - to see what your body is capable of- to feel the blessings that God has given to you- to enjoy the sport. I have only HIM to thank for giving me the desire, capability, and passion for running and will never take it for granted.
