"It takes courage to do it, be a runner. We all found that out a long time ago. Because it’s about more than fatigue. It’s about pain, and dealing with it for a long time. And it’s about resolve."

John L. Parker, Again to Carthage  (via angel-likes-running)

"Run for 20 minutes and you’ll feel better. Run another 20 and you might tire. Add on 3 hours and you’ll hurt, but keep going and you’ll see—and hear and smell and taste—the world with a vividness that will make your former life pale."
