|My son Jake, Bill and myself at the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon|
When I asked Bill what he likes about running, he said, “I like the achievement of running and the powerful feelings of satisfaction that mean..yes, you are doing the right thing.”
I love the fact that Bill, as a running hero to many, is candid enough to say, “many times over my 40 plus years of running and racing, I’ve failed to run as well as I wanted..That’s ok; we can all try again!” That is the attitude of a true winner, to have the courage and determination to get out there again and again!
Bill’s words of wisdom to a new runner…. “Give yourself time; try the Galloway method of running/walking; and celebrate your fantastic success!”
My favorite piece of advice from Bill, “Don’t let anything get in your way!”
