Runners’ Quotes

Here are some runners’ quotes to keep in mind when you need extra motivation or inspiration to keep running.

Maybe you could post one on your fridge or next to your computer screen for a reminder of why you run.

Runners’ Quotes:

  • “You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a
    thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to
    self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.”
    by Steve Prefontaine
  • “The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.”
    by Juma Ikangaa
  • “Some people create with words, or with music, or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, I've never seen anyone run like that before. It's more than a race - its a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative.”
    by Steve Prefontaine
  • “A lot of people run a race to see who's the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts.”
    by Steve Prefontaine
  • “I don't just go out there and run. I like to give people watching something exciting.”
    by Steve Prefontaine
  • “Having a true faith is the most difficult thing in the world. Many will try to take it from you.”
    by Steve Prefontaine
  • “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

  • “Of all the races, there is no better stage for heroism than a marathon.”
    by George Sheehan

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.”

  • “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
  • “Sometimes life takes us on a journey that we never anticipated, down paths that we would rather not take. You know those paths — seldom traveled and barely maintained, the ones that go careening down a mountain with treacherous drop offs, and then on relentless uphill climbs. Sometimes life ends up leading the way, tugging us along. The past seven months have been one of those journeys for me.”
    by Scott Jurek Scoot Jurek's Blog on 31 October 2008
