I can’t breathe, and it feels like my heart is being squeezed tighter and tighter.

"You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers."

J. Green

"Winning has nothing to do with racing. Most days don’t have races anyway. Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up."

Amby Burfoot 

"Right before you head out running, it can be hard to remember exactly why you’re doing it. You often have to override a nagging sense of futility, lacing up your shoes, telling yourslef that no matter how unlikely it seems right now, after you finish you will be glad you went. It’s only afterward that it makes sense, although even then it’s hard to rationalize why. You just feel right. After a run, you feel at one with the world, as though some unspecified, innate need has been fulfilled."

“Let me wake up next to you, have coffee in the morning and wander through the city with your hand in mine, and I’ll be happy for the rest of my fucked up little life.”

My morning routine: A perfectly brewed coffee, morning news, sports highlights, and the paper.

My ideal morning routine: Sitting on a bench with my perfectly brewed coffee, my love with her legs across mine drinking her tea and eating her breakfast oatmeal, morning news, sports highlights and the paper. We share bad breath kisses and ease into our day slowly.

"…the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."

When I’m confused, when things seem to be scary and when I’m not sure what’s going to happen next, I can always count on a run to clear my mind and bring peace to my soul.

"You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side…"

"The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for."

Marley

"It’s so messed up how little control we have over whether we want somebody."

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever"

Love for her.
