To get through …

To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.

“Running isn’t…

“Running isn’t a sport for pretty boys… It’s about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. Its the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut. It’s about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead.

It’s about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. It’s about being on a lonely road and running like a champion even when there’s not a single soul in sight to cheer you on. Running is all about having the desire to train and persevere until every fiber in your legs, mind, and heart is turned to steel.

And when you’ve finally forged hard enough, you will have become the best runner you can be. And that’s all that you can ask for.”

-Paul Maurer
