On Running

IMG_20140829_161158

Running isn’t about what distances you’ve raced, or even if you’ve done a race. … Not enough of us are talking about what a holistic sport it is, or should be.  It’s about staying fit and pushing yourself to achieve and surpass goals, sure; but it’s also about personal and spiritual growth, creativity, mental clarity, and emotional stability.  I find these things in running.  Even if I can only do a couple miles at 10-minute pace.

~Jamie Quatro, author & runner, from an interview in this month’s Runner’s World
