One of the reasons I chose RUNNING specifically, was because (as Murakami so eloquently put it) my competition is the most formidable foe of all; ME. The person I have to beat is the guy I was last week. The person I was yesterday.

from... Why I'm Running the New York City Marathon. by Ryan Reynolds.

did you see the funniest quote he made during that interview?

“I saw guys coming in to finish with bleeding nipples. Why in the hell were their nipples bleeding? People were crying. People were limping, hobbling, screaming, crawling… I breathed in deeply and decided something: I’d never f—ing do that ever, ever. What in the f— were these idiots thinking? Bleeding nipples. Bleeding. Nipples.”

--Ryan Reynolds after being a spectator about ½ before the NYC marathon finish.
