FFF: Quotes by Joe Henderson


Just one of his books.

I was looking for motivational quotes and I stumbled upon Joe Henderson’s.

The quotes below are both intriguing and motivational:



3. The hours, minutes and seconds stand as visible reminders that your effort put them all there. Preserve until your next run, when the watch lets you see how Impermanent your efforts are.

4.  A course never quite looks the same way twice. The combinations of weather, season, light, feelings and thoughts that you find there are ever-changing.

5. Where did you run today? Now there’s a question you don’t often hear.

And one more for good measure:

The challenge in running is not to aim at doing things no one has done but to keep doing things everyone could do – but most never will.

Happy Running? Ever hear of Joe Henderson?  What is your favorite running quote? Please share.

  1. I love these! And I love Joe Henderson (although I hadn’t read these exact quotes before.) I think he was the one who said “I don’t want to finish first, I want to finish last.” In other words, he wants to be out there running as long as he possibly can. Thanks for sharing these.
