“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or a gazelle — when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” – Roger Banister (via Born to Run pg. 13)
I think I just fell in love with running

Again, I LOVED that book! Every time I hear about it, it makes me want to go buy it! (I borrowed it from a friend when I read it) Great quote, btw
That quote seriously made me fall in love with running! This book is really good, I just finished Chapter 3. You should def. buy it! I’ve read a few books twice; if a book is good, why not read it again right? lol
This is one of my favourite running quotes!
