Quote of the day

"It's very hard in the beginning to understand that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants to quit."

George Sheehan


Of course it has never been about beating anyone else. It is about the voices.

Man, that's for sure.

It's always been about the voices
I ran because of the voices.
I ran to escape the voices.
And now the voices tell me to run.
