"Don’t think about the pain
When you run for long distances it’s impossible to avoid pain — it’s for everyone. When it comes you need to think of other things — the landscape, you talk with the racers, listen to music. I think about stories, like I’m a warrior being chased by an army. To not think about pain, you need to be in another world."

This is a man who knows.
I love this. When I get tired in the backcountry I always make up stories, like I’m on a mission or escaping something, and it shifts my perspective every time. I love that endurance sports allow us as adults to rediscover that side of imagination and play.
The best pickup line is the action of buying a girl the book she's looking at in a bookstore.

Can we just give huge props to this model for walking on a wet runway in stiletos?
To any spectator, this may just look like a group of runners from different schools competing against each other for places or medals. Passing each other in an attempt to demoralize the rest.
But that is not the case at all.
It’s a pack of people who share a common goal in a sport that they love.
It’s a pack of people who trust that they will put each other to the test and push beyond their limits.
It’s a pack of people who are willing to put in all the chips for not just themselves but for everyone around them to work hard for that sense of accomplishment at the end.
It’s a special bond that forms when you run in a pack unlike any other.
The gun goes off and suddenly…you’re among family.
"Falling in love with yourself is as beautiful as any experience of love is. It’s learning to laugh at your awkward tendencies and smile at all your quirky habits. It’s learning to be grateful for the many sides you have – confident, crazy, shy, sexy, nerdy, angry, weird, and all the rest of them. It is realizing that you’re one of a kind and that you deserve to give the world the best person you can be. Falling in love with yourself is being happy in your life and knowing that in this one moment in time, you’re beautiful simply because you are you."
