Jesse Owens Quote

I came across this earlier on, thought it was about right:

"I always loved running, it was something you could do by yourself and under your own power. You could go in any direction , fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your own feet and the courage of your lungs".

I think that was what I was trying to say on misstrolly's blog the other day but much more succinct

Ain't that the truth :) (the quote from Jesse, not the bit about you not being succint)


Nice quote :-)


Aye, that's about right :)


Another good quote. I liked the one from the 100 year old marathon runner too.


Great quote. Sums up the freedom of having the confidence and stamina to do your own thing....that is what this programme does for you.
