You don't run against a bloody stop watch, do you hear? A runner runs against himself, against the best that's in him. Not against a dead thing of wheels and pulleys. That's the way to be great, running against yourself. Against all the rotten mess in the world. Against God, if you're good enough.
There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be.
Everyone who has run knows that its most important value is in removing tension and allowing a release from whatever other cares the day may bring.
Runners just do it - they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first.
Winners never quit, and quitters never win.
Running is like mouthwash; if you can feel a burn, its working.
My sport is your sport's punishment.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.

Pains lasts for a moment, but pride lasts forever.
Somewhere in the world someone is training when you are not. When you race him, he will win.

The long run is what puts the tiger in the cat.
There are clubs you can't belong to, neighborhoods you can't live in, schools you can't get into, but the roads are always open.
A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways as they're capable of understanding.
Good things come slow - especially in distance running.
A lot of people run a race to see who's the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts.
The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.
Success isn't how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog.
The more I run, the more I want to run, and the more I live a life conditioned and influenced and fashioned by my running. And the more I run, the more certain I am that I am heading for my real goal: to become the person I am.
If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don't spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it.
Run if you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up.
Every man dies. Not every man really lives. [In the movie Braveheart]

Run like you stole something.
What distinguishes those of us at the starting line from those of us on the couch is that we learn through running to take what the days gives us, what our body will allow us, and what our will can tolerate.
Pain is weakness leaving the body.
To be good is not enough when you dream of being great.
It's rude to count people as you pass them. Out loud.
