  • Running became my way of solving this puzzle of what had happened to me. It was just me and the road.

Quotes about Lester[edit]

  • Recall the story of Jason Lester, who could have allowed the devastating paralysis of his arm to send him into a spiral of depression, anger, and desire for vengeance. Indeed, he did feel some of these emotions; who wouldn't? But his sense of discipline, instilled by his father during years of athletic training, was stronger.
