"Sure you could join a DietBet to lose some lbs before the meals, but I think finishing the year strong is about creating habits that will take you in to 2014 feeling amazing. Habits that allow you to enjoy grandma’s super special fudge, while still getting in a ton of greens and waking up on time to get in a workout."

Finish Strong- Don’t Stop With Time on the Clock- Run to The Finish

"When I first started running I couldn’t run a long distance. I could only run for about twenty minutes, or thirty… But as I continued to run, my body started to accept the fact that it was running, and I could gradually increase the distance. I was starting to acquire a runner’s form, my breathing became more regular and my pulse settled down. The main thing was not the speed or distance so much as running every day, without taking a break"

The Best Quotes from Haruki Marukami’s “What I Walk About When I Talk About Running”

Great athletes aren’t straining their bodies with their minds. They’re just moving. They do what they do with power, grace, fluidity. They do it without thinking. They don’t need to make the decisions for their bodies. Athletes move for what they want, and trust their bodies to find the way.

This isn’t some concept reserved for a chosen elite. Why would you train to be good in your body, when you can train to be great? Why would you train to be good in your life, when you can train to be great?

This also isn’t just about how to have a great run or an inspiring climb, although it will get you there. It’s about how to be great in your life. You can stress and strain and obsess about controlling every movement in your life. Or you can trust that there’s a better way, that you already have it, and start using it.
