“There is no substitute for learning to live in our bodies. All the tests and all the machines in the world will fail if we do not first become good animals.”
George Sheehan said that. Light out, go over yonder, head down the road; I did it this morning, ran that is. A man of any gender isn’t his waistline, or his aerobic capacity but more so his dreams and his commitment to them, to his sweat and his perseverance in the real world, to his kindness and his regard for the necessity of truth and compassion and kindness when telling the truth…all this is much clearer to me in the miles, on account of ten miles is ten miles at 5 minutes per, ten minutes per 30 minutes per…you just need to get them, the miles that is, in order to have what they have to offer.
The rest is just window dressing and disappears with the years.
