From Runner's World:
"I believed that whereas success in other sports depended on raw physicality- yur height in basketball or your weight and strength in football- distance running rewarded those who trained the hardest."
It's not strictly true. I'll never run a 2-hour half marathon, no matter how hard I try, because it's just not in me. But I like that one thing is true- even a big spaz like me can run. And that is reason no. 32432 why I like it.
