ultra quotes

being an extreme sport, ultra-running lends itself to all sorts of creative, funny, and painfully true quotes. “you’re almost there!”, “looking good!”, “it’s all downhill from here!”, “aid station is just around the bend!”, are some common ones, but there are also jewels such as “it never always gets worse”, and “the race continued as i hammered up the trail, passing rocks and trees as if they were standing still”, as said red fisher on his wasatch front 100 experience in ’86. do you have any quotes (ultra related or not) that you would like to share?
