Key words for the season. Stay focused.
The only thing that matters in life is love. And I love running.
You’re a world champion for one year, but you’re an Olympic champion for life.
I want to be as good as I can be, for as long as possible. I’m always going to run. And if I’m going to run, I might as well race and try to be up near the top.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
I see myself as an artist. Running is the way I express my talent. I wish I could paint or write music, but running is what I do and I feel great joy from it.
People don’t play sports because it’s fun.
Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn’t imagine their life without it.
It’s part of them, the love/hate relationship. It’s what they live for.
They live for the practices, parties, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless pairs of shoes, water, Gatorade, and coaches you hate but appreciate.
They live for the way it feels when they beat the other team, and knowing those two extra sprints they ran in practice were worth it.
They live for the way they become a family with their team, they live for the countless songs they sing in their head while training all those hours.
They live for the competition, they live for the friends, the practices, the memories, the pain… it’s who they are.
Run with your heart instead of your mind. When you think with your mind, you think of the things you can and can’t do. But when you run with your heart you forget about what you can’t do, and you just go out and do it.
I am Jack’s complete lack of surprise.
