George Sheehan

George A. Sheehan (November 5, 1918 – November 1, 1993) was born in Brooklyn, New York.

He was a cardiologist who became the philosopher of the recreational running movement in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He is best known for his books and writings about the sport of running. His book, “Running & Being: The Total Experience,” became a New York Times best seller.  He was a track star at Manhattan College, but did not renew his interest in running until age 45 while living in Rumson, New Jersey. Five years later, he ran a 4:47 mile, which was the world’s first sub-five-minute time by a 50-year-old.

Quotes by Dr. George A. Sheehan

  • “Some think guts is sprinting at the end of a race. But guts is what got you there to begin with.
    Guts start back in the hills with 6 miles to go and you're thinking of how you can get out of this race without anyone noticing. Guts begin when you still have forty minutes of torture left and you're already hurting more than you ever remember”
    by George Sheehan
  • “I have met my hero, and he is me”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Have you ever felt worse after a run?”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Success rests in having the courage and endurance, and above all, the will to become the person you are. . .”
    by George Sheehan
  • “It's very hard in the beginning to understand that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants you to quit.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “The difference between a jogger and a runner is an entry blank.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “There will never be a day when we won't need dedication, discipline, energy, and the feeling that we can change things for the better.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “The true runner is a very fortunate person. He has found something in him that is just perfect.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Of all the races, there is no better stage for heroism than a marathon.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Like most runners, I always want to do better. I am constantly after myself for eating too much and training too little. I know if I weighed a few pounds less and trained a few hours more, my times would improve. But I find the rewards not quite worth the effort...I am forced, therefore to do the best with what I've got. I must get my speed and distance from the most efficient use of my body.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “To know you are one with what you are doing, to know that you are a complete athlete, begins with believing you are a runner.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “To keep from decaying, to be a winner, the athlete must accept pain--not only accept it, but look for it, live with it, learn not to fear it.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Out on the roads there is fitness and self-discovery and the persons we were destined to be.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Sweat cleanses from the inside. It comes from places a shower will never reach.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Fitness is a stage you pass through on the way to becoming a racer.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “Success rests in having the courage and endurance, and above all, the will to become the person you are.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “We who run (marathons) are different from those who merely study us. We are out there experiencing what they are trying to put into words. We know what they are merely trying to know. They are seeking belief, while we already believe. Our difficulty is in expressing the whole truth of that experience, that knowledge, that belief.”
    by George Sheehan
  • “The music of a marathon is a powerful strain, one of those tunes of glory. It asks us to forsake pleasures, to discipline the body, to find courage, to renew faith and to become one's own person, utterly and completely.”
    by George Sheehan
