Running quotes

"Now bid me run, and I will strive with things impossible."

-William Shakespeare
Julius Ceasar

"We are different, in essence, from other men.  If you want to win something, run 100 meters.  If you want to experience something, run a marathon."

-Emil Zapotek

"People can't understand why a man runs.  They don't see any sport in it.  Argue it lacks the sight and thrill of body contact.  Yet, the conflict is there, more  raw and challenging than any man versus man competition.  For in running it is man against himself, the cruelest of opponents.  The other runners are not the real enemies.  His adversary lies within him, in his ability, with brain and heart to master himself and his emotions."

-Glenn Cunningham

"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 you to quit."

-George Sheehan
