We can't all be heroes because someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by. (Will Rogers)

Without a doubt, it is the spectators who make the Hastings Half Marathon what it is.

Why I love to run from The Guardian - thank you C for the link!

We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves... The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, 'You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.' The human spirit is indomitable. (Sir Roger Bannister, first runner to run a sub-4 minute mile)

Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it. (Oprah Winfrey)
