"To be a runner is to learn continual life lessons. The very act of surpassing personal limits in training and racing will bend the mind and body toward a higher purpose for the rest of my runners’ lives. Settling for mediocrity- settling for good enough- becomes less and less of an option. And with so many in the world all too happy to bask in mediocrity- settling instead of pushing- those who learn to be the best version of themselves know the secret to a full life."
