Wer kein Talent hat, muss Langstrecke laufen.

Wenn es sich am Anfang nicht zu langsam anfühlt, ist es zu schnell.

You only regret the workouts you did'nt do.

If it's important, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

Wenn es egal ist wie man sich hinterher fühlt, kann jeder einen Halbmarathon laufen.
(Nils Dehn)

Sie verbringen nur wenige Stunden die Woche mit ihrem Hobby, aber Sie reden ständig darüber.

It's good. I ran today.

Divide your race into thirds. 
Run the first part with your head,
the middle part with your personality
and the last part with your heart
(Mike Fanelli)

We live in an 'instant' society, with instant fast food, instant diets (to lose the weight gained from the instant food), instant Internet, instant cell phones, pagers, email, and 24-hour news. That outlook sometimes filters down to running. There are, however, no instant results in running. Seeking instant success typically leads to disaster. Better to steadily put in your long runs and look for far-off improvement. In fact, if you did nothing but long runs you would improve and be more likely to stay injury free. Our sport is a patient, long, and drawn-out affair that requires, above all – more than talent, altitude, or a new pair of shoes – determination, dedication, and discipline.
(Michael Sandrock, Running Tough)
