Whopping Ultra Marathon quotations

I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.

It hurts up to a point and then it doesn't get any worse.

The human body is capable of amazing physical deeds.

If we could just free ourselves from our perceived limitations and tap into our internal fire, the possibilities are endless.

The real competition is against the little voice inside you that wants to quit

It is not the critic who counts...The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.

So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

There is magic in misery. Just ask any runner.

If it felt good, you didn't push hard enough. It's supposed to hurt like hell.

I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport.

Somewhere along the line we seem to have confused comfort with happiness.

I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary.

Runners like to train 100 miles per week because it's a round number.

But I think 88 is a lot rounder.

How to run an ultramarathon ? Puff out your chest, put one foot in front of the other, and don't stop till you cross the finish line.

I run because it always takes me where I want to go.

Suffering is the sole origin of consciousness.

Pain is the body's way of ridding itself of weakness.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
