On this page you only find ten running quotes. Yep, only ten.

It's easy to present hundreds of quotes to you. Just browse the web for two minutes. But I only want to show a selection. Only the best will do for you !

I have not only chosen quotes by runners or running coaches. Many of the Best Inspirational Running Quotes are by non-runners.Said not even with running in mind.

What makes these quotes so great is they can easily refer to your running but also to the bigger picture, your life.
To the pain you go through. Either in life or in running. The madness of it. But also the beauty within....

Enjoy !
