    and i got this one from someone on this site- its kinda like a poem
    "runners
    the strong the quick the mentally sick
    runners
    the fast the sleep the thin as a stick
    runners
    the speedy the odd the saucony sod
    runners

    i use my feet
    don`t mess with me

    · Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. IT knows it must faster than the lion or it will not survive. Every morning a lion wakes up and it knows it must move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn’t matter if you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be moving. ~ Maurice Green ( shortly after running the first sub-4 mile.)

    Hm. Interesting quotes here...just felt like adding this rather stupid one, though it is one of my faves. I think I saw it in an ad from "High School Runner."

    "Don't like crowds? ... Run faster."
