- "Your legs are not giving in, your head is giving up." This reminds me that if I take stock of how my body feels, it's usually willing to keep going. It's my willpower that is weak.

Favorite Running Quote
- Out there -- along the streets, over the trails, in the fields, on the pathways -- I walk, I jog, I run. I breathe, I see, I hear, I feel. I am amazed. I give thanks. --- Bob Cochrane on "running" while training for his first event at age 54 - May 2012
