Running Quote #21

Leave the Passed behind
Kevin Attridge
Submitted by : Kevin, New Yersey, USA

Running Quote #22

Champions aren't made in the gym.
Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision.

Muhammad Ali

Running Quote #23

People don't play sports because it's fun.
Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn't imagine their life without it.
It's part of them, the love/hate relationship. It's what they live for.
They live for the practices, parties, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless pairs of shoes, water, Gatorade, and coaches you hate but appreciate.
They live for the way it feels when they beat the other team, and knowing those two extra sprints they ran in practice were worth it.
They live for the way they become a family with their team, they live for the countless songs they sing in their head while training all those hours.
They live for the competition, they live for the friends, the practices, the memories, the's who they are.

Running Quote #23

Someone may beat me, but they're going to have to bleed to do it.
Steve Prefontaine
Submitted by : Matthew, New York, USA

Running Quote #24

You also need to look back, not just at the people who are running behind you but especially at those who don't run and never will... those who run but don't race...those who started training for a race but didn't carry through...those who got to the starting line but didn't in the finish line...those who once raced better than you but no longer run at all. You're still here. Take pride in wherever you finish. Look at all the people you've outlasted.
Joe Henderson
Submitted by : Aleah, Phillipines

Running Quote #25

Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you will be right.
Submitted by : Dennis, California, USA

Running Quote #26

Run like hell and get the agony over with.
Clarence DeMar
Submitted by : Ron, Hawaii, USA

Running Quote #27

The only good race pace is suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die.
Steve Prefontaine
Submitted by : Jessica, Virginia, USA

Running Quote #28

People ask why I run.
I say "If you have to ask, you will never understand".
It is something only those select few know.
Those who put themselves through pain, but deep down know how good it feels.

Submitted by : Katherine, USA

Running Quote #29

You must listen to your body. Run through annoyance but not through pain.
George Sheehan
Submitted by : James, Indiana, USA

Running Quote #30

Running is a mental game, that you can only win by beating yourself.
Justin Laing
Submitted by : Justin, Ontario, Canada
