    Run with the first mile with your legs,
    The second mile with your heart,
    And the third mile with your balls.

    Something that my biology teacher had as her background on her computer. I thought of that quote after I got my first and currently only race victory, wouldn't it have been nice to have a T-shirt that said that on the back ;P

    Sorry i'm such an "IDIOT!" I copied it off a website. I don't pay that much attention, not that it would matter if i did because i didn't know that maurice green is a sprinter. I also have never heard of rodger Bannister before this. I just like running, and was looking up quotes. I'm not really sure my ignorance to these stats qualifies me as an idiot, but if it does, i think i would rather be one than the kid who feels the need to emphasize a stranger's mistake not only once, but twice by opening a whole new thread on it after no one paid much attention to the first one.

    For our shirts my team has used:

     

     

    "Shut up and Run."

     

     

    and

     

     

    "This Sport would be fun if it wasn't for all the running."

     

     

    There are some really good ones out there and I loved reading all of these.

    Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.

    It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.

    Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.

    It knows that it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.

    It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle

    when the sun comes up you'd better be running.
