Running: It’s all in the mind

Running:  It’s all in the mind!  Sure there’s a bit of physicality but the motivation to get up, get dressed and get running begins in the …mind!


“You run the first 20 miles of the marathon with your body. You run the last six miles and 385 yards with your soul. It is somewhere around that 20-mile mark, ‘THE WALL,’ that the mind begins to scream enough is enough! I love distance running or distance anything because it unifies. We all take the same journey, just at different speeds. When you cross that finish line you share a bond with all your fellow racers. Nothing needs to be said, it is just known that all of you went to the dark place and willed yourself through to the other side. It is a feeling that can be partially explained but only understood by doing. Once you make that journey you are changed forever.” – Steven Cannon, 40 DAYS: Life, Love, Loss and A Historic Run Around One of the World’s Largest Lakes


EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RUNNING IN 14 WORDS:  “Build step by step. Push yourself, but not too hard. Learn. Keep it fun”.  The rest is details. Some of those details are important, but a runner should not get wrapped up in them to the degree that they distract him or her from these four simple principles. – Matt Fitzgerald, author of Racing Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance
