My all time favorite quote comes from the late famous distance runner, Steve Prefontaine.
‘Most people run a race to see who is fastest, I run a race to see who has the most guts.’
The pictures below are from the Mud Race. This is a race that takes you through the woods, up and down steep hills, over muddy paths, into mud and creeks and offers every possible challenge for a runner.
Here, I am struggling to pass a kid half my age. Even though he beat me by a few steps, the crowd behind me didn’t have a chance. Yea…I was determined…YEA, I had more guts than them! And to the dude that gave me the chance to go for it all…thanks pal but next year…YOU’RE MINE!
