Running Quotations

Marathon running, like golf, is a game for players, not winners. That is why Callaway sells golf clubs and Nike sells running shoes. But running is unique in that the world's best racers are on the same course, at the same time, as amateurs, who have as much chance of winning as your average weekend warrior would scoring a touchdown in the NFL.
Hunter S. Thompson

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
Jiddu Krishnamurti

Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness.
Harold Kushner

Eudora Welty

It's useless to hold a person to anything he says while he's in love, drunk, or running for office.
Shirley MacLaine
