John Bingham

Frustration is the first step towards improvement. I have no incentive to improve if I’m content with what I can do and if I’m completely satisfied with my pace, distance and form as a runner. It’s only when I face frustration and use it to fuel my dedication that I feel myself moving forwards.More John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.More John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It was being a runner that mattered, not how fast or how far I could run. The joy was in the act of running and in the journey, not in the destination.

But you need to honor what you've accomplished, rather than thinking of what's left to be done (p. 1More John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I am a runner because I run. Not because I run fast. Not because I run far. I am a runner because I say I am. And no one can tell me I'm not.More John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I didn't train all that time just to come here and get it over with as fast as I canMore John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.More John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

In the end though, you will learn that you are human. You are no more and no less than all those who are learning their lessons as you learn yours.More John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's only when movement becomes the most natural state in our lives that we can finally begin to enjoy the motion. And it's only when standing still becomes impossible that we can finally embrace the kinds of changes that are inevitable in our lives.
We were not designed to stand still. If we were, we'd have at least three legs. We were designed to move. Our bodies are bodies that have walked across vast continents. Our bodies are bodies that have carried objects of art and war over great distances. We are no lessMore John Bingham [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As an athlete, when you least expect it, you may find yourself standing on the threshold of an accomplishment so monumental that it strikes fear into your soul.
