“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.”
–John Bingham, Runner and author
This quote is especially inspiring to me today as I contemplate buying a pair of Vibram FiveFingers KSOs. My friend, Max, bought a pair only a few days ago and has become obsessed. I trust his judgment and admire his enthusiasm for his newfound running shoes and I just so happen to be looking for new ways to get me re-inspired to take my fitness and my running to a new level [especially as I commit myself to running the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon for the 4th time, the NYC Half Marathon for the 1st time, and the San Francisco Marathon for the 3rd time].
Who knows — maybe I’ll snatch up a pair on my trip in New York!
