On becoming a runner

What makes you a runner is pretty much your mind rather than your body, your commitment rather than your muscles

Born to run

"Beyond the very extreme of fatigue and distress, we may find amounts of ease and power we never dreamed ourselves to own; sources of strength never taxed at all because we never push through the obstruction."
William James, quoted in "Born to run" by Christopher McDougall
