This Marathon Life

by a passionately stubborn runner

Long Run, Long Thoughts

Did a 19 mile long run this morning after watching the new Steve Jobs movie on Netflix and I couldn’t stop thinking about a quote Steve Jobs said during the movie.

"It has got to be something that you’re passionate about because otherwise you won’t have the perseverance to see it through."

It really hit home for me because it’s exactly how I feel about running. Spending countless hours out alone running in the cold winter and spring months is really hard on the body and mind. Though, in the end, it is passion that beats out the part of my brain that says to just stay inside bundled up with my cat. Points for getting out there on the bad weather days my friends. :smiley:
