Running-Quoatable Sunday

All three of my sons are cross country runners and they chose the theme for today: Running.

"Jogging is very beneficial. It's good for your legs and your feet. It's also very good for the ground. It makes it feel needed."
~ Charles Schulz

"If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise."
~ P.Z. Pearce

"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."
~ Bill Persons

"The only reason I would take up jogging is so that I could hear heavy breathing again."
~ Erma Bombeck

"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."
~ Jimmy Carter

"I don't think jogging is healthy, especially morning jogging. If morning joggers knew how tempting they looked to morning motorists, they would stay home and do sit-ups."
~ Rita Rudner

"Runners just do it - they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first."
~ Unknown

The quote chosen by all three as a favourite quote:

"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."
~ George Sheehan

These are great! I coach college x-c and will have to share these with my team.

My fave runner quote is by Don Kardong: "Without ice cream, there would be darkness and chaos."
