"I think every runner needs one setback in their running career to make them realize how much they love running."

"Right before you head out running, it can be hard to remember exactly why you’re doing it. You often have to override a nagging sense of futility, lacing up your shoes, telling yourslef that no matter how unlikely it seems right now, after you finish you will be glad you went. It’s only afterward that it makes sense, although even then it’s hard to rationalize why. You just feel right. After a run, you feel at one with the world, as though some unspecified, innate need has been fulfilled."

you can’t want it bad for a few hours…you gotta want it bad every morning, every time you hit the treadmill or hit the weight room, every time you get in the kitchen. you can’t just want it when you’re watching others do work or when you’re sidelined. you gotta want it 24/7 365. you knew what you signed up for.
