Starting a new feature here, a running quote or passage to motivate your, or at least give you something to think about during your running week.

I've noticed the great runners often respond to their amazing accomplishments with a ho-hum matter-of-factness. Perhaps we would reach greater heights if we reacted to running achievements with less elation and more expectation.
