champions are made
in the off-season, in the freezing rain, in the weight room, on the treadmill, in the ice buckets, on holidays, on weekends, on friday nights, saturday mornings, on the road, on the track, on the trail, in the woods, in the blazing sun, at 6 in the morning
when no one is watching
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all people had the spirit of a runner? If they waved to strangers, as a runner waves to other runners? It would be beautiful if all people would pat others on the back after they accomplished something big, just as runners pat each others backs after a hard race. And wouldn’t it be amazing if we were cheered for to keep going when we felt like dying and giving up, just as being cheered for in a race? Oh how wonderful the world would be if we all acted like runners.
There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.
