The athlete of today is not an athlete alone. He’s the center of a team – doctors scientists coaches agents and so on.
It’s at the borders of pain and suffering that the men are separated from the boys.
If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years then will power is no longer a problem. It’s raining? That doesn’t matter. I am tired? That’s besides the point. It’s simply that I just have to.
A runner must run with dreams in his heart not money in his pocket.
An athlete cannot run with money in his pockets. He must run with hope in his heart and dreams in his head.
If you want to run run a mile. If you want to experience a different life run a marathon.
We are different in essence from other men. If you want to win something run 100 meters. If you want to experience something run a marathon.
