In the words of Jesse Owens:

"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 feet and the courage of your lungs."

Remember; “Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.”
