I kept folding over pages in various places that I wanted to come back to and think about. They may sound contrived, when reproduced out of context like this, but the more I think about them, the more I pause on these statements, the more I think they are really important.
I’m late to jump on the Born to Run bandwagon but I found the book surprisingly inspiring.
Ask nothing from your running, in other words, and you’ll get more than you ever imagined.
Instead of cringing from fatigue, you embrace it. You refuse to let it go. You get to know it so well you’re not afraid of it anymore.
Make friends with pain and you will never be alone.
It’s a great book. Even if you don’t run, I think you’ll find it a solid read. And yes, I am going for a run tonight.
