“Running, one might say, is basically an absurd past-time upon which to be exhausting ourselves. But if you can find meaning, in the kind of running you have to do to stay on this team, chances are you will be able to find meaning in another absurd past-time: Life.”—Bill Bowerman - Without Limits (via adistancerunner)
runner:hey guys, i threw up after that workout/race yesterday
non runner friend:what the heck that's gross why do you do that to yourself what kind of a cult are you part of why are you happy about that and why would you tell me that i'm appalled.
runner friend:right on nice work i'm impressed you must have put out a great effort what were your splits and what was the workout/event the last time i threw up was weeks ago i really need to step it up your coach must be proud
