Marathon Runners quotes by Grant Antrews
#5. To the uninformed observer, the agonizing cramps in a marathon runner's calf muscles are heroic while the relentless explosions of a dominatrix's paddle against her client's bottoms are obscene and perverted. That the two victims might confront their ordeals for similar reasons, and take away similar benefits, has rarely been considered.

Marathon Runners quotes by Mooji
#10. Some beings will walk with you for the duration of this bodily existence, up to the very end. Some will come with bright promises, bright lights, but they fade quickly. Others come, they don't look like they will go very far, but they are marathon runners; they're there with you all the time. You cannot determine this ... Somehow in the flow of your own unique river, you will see that everything is as it should be. #Quote by Mooji
Marathon Runners quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#11. Most people who do a lot of exercise, particularly in the form of competitive athletics, have unneurotic, extraverted, optimistic personalities to begin with. (Marathon runners are exceptions to this.) #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Marathon Runners quotes by Lori Foster
#12. She eyed his gorgeous body, and raised a brow. "Doing a little flaunting of your own this morning, huh?"
"In deference to your delicate sensibilities, I pulled on jeans. Isn't that enough?"
Enough for what, her peace of mind? Ha. Being around Trace, especially with him like this, half-naked, sent her heart racing like a marathon runner's. "Maybe it would be," Priss admitted, "if you don't look so good."
The compliment sent his right eyebrow arching high.
"Oh, come on, Trace. You know what you look like." She visually devoured him again, more blatantly this time, and noticed a rise behind the fly of his jeans. For her?
Well-well-well. Flattering. #Quote by Lori Foster
Marathon Runners quotes by Grete Waitz
#13. I'm never going to run this again. #Quote by Grete Waitz
Marathon Runners quotes by Adolf Hitler
#14. For the greater a man's works for the future, the less the present can comprehend them; the harder his fight, and the rarer success. If, however, once in centuries success does come to a man, perhaps in his latter days a faint beam of his coming glory may shine upon him. To be sure, these great men are only the Marathon runners of history; the laurel wreath of the present touches only the brow of the dying hero. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Marathon Runners quotes by Ed Markey
#15. My thoughts and prayers go out to the thousands of marathon runners, onlookers, city officials and others affected by this senseless tragedy. #Quote by Ed Markey
Marathon Runners quotes by Dani Shapiro
#16. If I waited to be in the mood to write, I'd barely have a chapbook of material to my name. Who would ever be in the mood to write? Do marathon runners get in the mood to run? Do teachers wake up with the urge to lecture? I don't know, but I doubt it. My guess is that it's the very act that is generative. The doing of the thing that makes possible the desire for it. #Quote by Dani Shapiro
Marathon Runners quotes by Shannon Miller
#17. I thought about running a marathon a long time ago, but I'm just not a runner. #Quote by Shannon Miller
Marathon Runners quotes by Fred Lebow
#18. The marathon is a charismatic event. It has everything. It has drama. It has competition. Every jogger can't dream of being an Olympic champion, but he can dream of finishing a marathon. #Quote by Fred Lebow
Marathon Runners quotes by Andrew Solomon
#19. The sprinter unwisely indulges his arrogance against the marathon runner, and likewise, parents who encourage their children's narcissism do them no favours. It is best to accomplish something before becoming famous, because if the fame comes first, it often precludes accomplishment ... "You don't build a career by playing Carnegie Hall. You build a career and then Carnegie Hall will invite you to play". #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Marathon Runners quotes by Susannah Sandlin
#20. He'd danced around that story about why he'd moved to Terrebonne more smoothly than an Olympic skater on ice. #Quote by Susannah Sandlin

Marathon Runners quotes by Bill Bowerman

Marathon Runners quotes by Kristin Armstrong
#29. Runners and yogis are alike in lots of ways, and not just because some of us need yoga to unkink what running jams. Runners and yogis are also alike because of this tortoise shell idea, this 'home' we can access inside ourselves. #Quote by Kristin Armstrong
Marathon Runners quotes by Daniel C. Dennett
#30. One cannot learn all about what it's like to run a marathon by interviewing only those who drop out - but one can learn something. #Quote by Daniel C. Dennett
Marathon Runners quotes by John Bingham
#31. At age 43, when I decided to run again, I realized that the images used to describe runners didn't fit me. I wasn't a rabbit. I wasn't a gazelle or a cheetah or any of the other animals that run fast and free. But I wasn't a turtle or a snail either. I wasn't content anymore to move slowly through my life and hide in my shell when I was scared.
I was a round little man with a heavy heart but a hopeful spirit. I didn't really run, or even jog. I waddled. I was a Penguin. This was the image that fit. Emperor-proud, I stand tallto face the elements of my life. Yes, I am round. Yes, I am slow. Yes, I run as thought my legs are tied together at the knees. But I am running. And that is all that matters. #Quote by John Bingham
Marathon Runners quotes by Esa Tikkanen
#32. Finland has produced so many brilliant distance runners because back home it costs $2.50 a gallon for gas. #Quote by Esa Tikkanen
Marathon Runners quotes by Allister Coetzee
#33. I said last week that the number on Jean's back does not matter. He stays effective as a runner, decision-maker and leader. #Quote by Allister Coetzee
Marathon Runners quotes by Sammy Hagar
#34. If you don't ever stop singing, your voice stays in shape. It's like the marathon runner. You've got to run, run, run to stay in shape. #Quote by Sammy Hagar
Marathon Runners quotes by A. Helwa
#35. Awakening to faith is not a one-time event, but a continuously unfolding reality. The journey of faith is not a race, but a marathon of love that each person walks at a different pace. #Quote by A. Helwa
Marathon Runners quotes by Jeff Galloway
#36. I spent the first twenty years of my running career trying to run as many miles as I could as fast as I could. Then I spent the next twenty years trying to figure out how to run the least amount of miles needed to finish a marathon. And I've come to the conclusion the second way is much more enjoyable. #Quote by Jeff Galloway
Marathon Runners quotes by Phillip C. McGraw
#37. Life's a marathon, not a sprint. #Quote by Phillip C. McGraw
Marathon Runners quotes by Celia Rivenbark
#38. I have several close friends who have run marathons, a word that is actually derived from two Swahili words: mara, which means 'to die a horrible death', and thon, which means 'for a stupid T-shirt.' Look it up. #Quote by Celia Rivenbark
Marathon Runners quotes by Duff Goldman
#39. I'm not on a mission. I'm not a paragon of health for anybody. I'm not going to run a marathon or model for 'Men's Health' or go on bike rides with Lance Armstrong. I'm not. Trust me. #Quote by Duff Goldman
Marathon Runners quotes by Pedro Winter
#40. At the time, in 1996, an electronic band signing with a major label was something new, at least in France. Daft Punk knew that this meant a marathon of promotion, TV appearances, etc. To protect themselves and to be discrete, they came up with the masks and, three years later, the robot helmets. #Quote by Pedro Winter
Marathon Runners quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#41. You know,' Mrs Dunne said, 'you can come use my phone whenever you need to,' She stood up and sat on the edge of her desk, resting her hand on Eleanor's knee. Eleanor was this close to asking for a toothbrush, but she thought that would lead to a marathon of hugging and knee-rubbing. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Marathon Runners quotes by Joan Rivers
#42. If you're going to die, die interesting! Is there anything worse than a boring death? (Other than a Charlie Rose marathon on PBS?) I think not. When my time comes I'm going to go out in high style. I have no intention of being sick or lingering or dragging on and on and boring everyone I know. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Marathon Runners quotes by Jarod Kintz
#43. I'm the only person I know who has slept through a fire drill. Apparently, I pulled the alarm. Yeah, I sleepwalk. Sometimes I sleep run. I was asleep when I ran the Boston Marathon. I was so tired when I finished that I slept for another sixteen hours. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Marathon Runners quotes by Dave Ramsey
#44. Financial winners don't run sprints, they run marathons. They don't rush. They do it step by step over time. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Marathon Runners quotes by Jennifer Graham
#45. There are some people who think runners are snobs. These people are called non-runners. And they're right, of course. There is a certain hubris you develop when you do things no one else does. #Quote by Jennifer Graham
Marathon Runners quotes by Frank Shorter
#46. You can actually suffer a little bit more going slowly than when you're going really fast. A faster marathon might even be easier than a slow one, in terms of what it takes out of you mentally. #Quote by Frank Shorter
Marathon Runners quotes by Daniel Coyle
#47. If you have early success, do your best to ignore the praise and keep pushing yourself to the edges of your ability, where improvement happens. If you don't have early success, don't quit. Instead, treat your early efforts as experiments, not as verdicts. Remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint. #Quote by Daniel Coyle
Marathon Runners quotes by Uta Pippig
#48. I definitely want to show how beautiful the marathon can be. I am the opponent of all those who find the marathon bad: the psychologists, the physiologists, the doubters. I make the marathon beautiful for myself and for others. That's why I'm here. #Quote by Uta Pippig
Marathon Runners quotes by Taylor Swift
#49. What makes me happy is just curling up in with my mom in her bed and watching a marathon of 'CSI' and 'Grey's Anatomy' episodes with pints of ice cream. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Marathon Runners quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#50. Starting your book is only the first five miles of a twenty-six-mile marathon that's one-third of a triathlon (authoring, publishing, and entrepreneuring). #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Marathon Runners quotes by Don Kardong
#51. My introduction to dissociation had been at Kenneth Cooper's clinic in January of 1975. Cooper had assembled a gaggle of top American distance runners and a half dozen top researchers, the intent being to figure out what the difference was - physiologically, biomechanically, psychologically - between elite and subelite runners. #Quote by Don Kardong
Marathon Runners quotes by Kathrine Switzer
#52. When I was first running marathons, we were sailing on a flat earth. We were afraid we'd get big legs, grow mustaches, not get boyfriends, not be able to have babies. Women thought that something would happen to them, that they'd break down or turn into men, something shadowy, when they were only limited by their own society's sense of limitations. #Quote by Kathrine Switzer
Marathon Runners quotes by Susan Orlean
#53. I remember thinking that a girdle was barbaric, and that never in a million years would I treat myself like a sleeping bag being shoved into a stuff sack. Never! Instead, I would run marathons and work out and be in perfect shape and reject the tyranny of the girdle forever. #Quote by Susan Orlean
Marathon Runners quotes by Apolo Ohno
#54. I only watch the last 40 seconds. Watching a whole marathon over time, the beginning, middle and end look very slow. I want to see action! I can't help it. #Quote by Apolo Ohno
Marathon Runners quotes by William Goldman
#55. I don't know that you'll understand this, but once upon a time, long ago, I was a scholar and a marathon man, but that fella's gone now, dead I suppose, but I remember something he thought, which was that if you don't learn the mistakes of the past, you'll be doomed to repeat them. Well we've been making a mistake with people like you, because public trials are bullshit and executions are games for winners - all this time we should have been giving back pain. That's the real lesson. That's the loser's share, just pain, pure and simple, pain and torture, no hotshot lawyers running around trying to see that justice is done. I think we'd have a nice peaceful place here if all you warmakers knew you better not start something because if you lost, agony was just around the bend. That's what I'd like to give you. Agony. Not what you're suffering now. I mean a lifetime of it, 'cause that's the only degree of justice I think we're ready for down here yet, and I know any humanist might disagree with me too, but I don't think you will, because you had a lot to do with educating me, I'm like you now, except I'm better at it, because you're going to die and I've still got a long way to go. #Quote by William Goldman
