Words for Thought

We are in the process of packing up our house in Texas ready for the big move to Dubai. As I was getting some gifts ready for one of the ladies I coach and another (who happens to be my French tutor) who I have spent a lot of time discussing training methods and race practices with I came across some running related quotes.

"We are different in essence from other men. If you want to win something, run 100 metres. If you want to experience something, run a marathon." --Emil Zatopek

"The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare" -- Juma Ikangaa, Tanzania

I gifted these lovely ladies each a copy of Born to Run. In the dedication to them I copied these words of wisdom.

Do you have any favourite running quotes?
