"A ten-mile run takes far longer than the 60 minutes reported by a grandfather clock. Such time, in fact, hardly exists at all in the real world; it is all out on the trail somewhere, and you only go back to it when you are out there."

"You don’t love a team for the titles. You don’t love a team for the trophies. You love a team because, somewhere in there, you’ve found yourself."
(via neuers)
"A good run feels like being part of the wind, flowing down the street with a power so strong yet so gentle. It feels like fire, warmth spreading from head to toe instantly. It feels like a shower for the soul, fresh and clear. The sun tickles your fingertips and you could go on forever. In those moments, the world seems so simple and the edge of heaven seems right at your fingertips. And non runners always ask why running is enjoyable. I just shrug because I know the secrets of a distance runner cannot truly be expressed in words to those who have not experienced the wind, fire, and water."

"Stand up buddy, you are an Olympian."
"Nick Symmonds to Duane Solomon, who was lying on his back after the men’s 800m final sobbing tears of joy in front of 22,000+ and a national television audience. Solomon ran a PR to join Symmonds, who ran an American Hayward Field record, and Khadevis Robinson on the Olympic team."  (via andyconstable)

"We may not see it yet, we may not even know it, but I think that we will look back as withered elderly men upon these times as some of the most profound of our lives. And if I don’t, that’s even better, because it would take a hell of a life to cloud over the shining, glistening days of collegiate cross country."
