I was jumping around some running forums the other day reading up on “Negative Split” running/training and happened upon a great “quotable” remark about running, training, and, quite honestly, life in general:
[I] Remember what a runner once told me as we were standing around for the start of a race… “No matter what you do now it won’t matter, your finish time was determined while you trained, so go have some fun.”
