"Running is a lot like life. Only 10 percent of it is exciting. 90 percent of it is slog and drudge."
-David Bedford, English distance runner who sometimes ran 200 miles a week in training
"I feel the earth and the wind and the trees. I feel its spirit. It puts me in the moment. I feel the rhythm of the race. It's like music. When the rhythm gets dissonant and chaotic, it is either a jazzy driving force behind me or demons inside me."
-Gabriel Harmony Jennings, talking about winning the 1,500 meter

"I love running cross-country... You come up a hill and see two deer going: 'What the hell is he doing?' On a track, I feel like a hamster."
-Robin Williams, film star/comic/runner/cyclist
