THE STORY:

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

The Mass General Marathon Team Fighting Kids' Cancer ... One Step at a Time was established in 1998 and has raised nearly $8 million in support of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. Thanks to the generous support of John Hancock Financial and other partners, we will continue to run until we find a cure … One Step at a Time.

By Haruki Maurakami in What I Talk About When I Talk About Running A Memoir 

One runner told of a mantra his older brother, also a runner, had taught him which he's pondered ever since he began running.  Here it is:  Pain is inevitable.  Suffering is optional. Say you're running and you start to think, 'Man this hurts, I can't take it anymore.' The hurt part is an unavoidable reality, but whether or not you can stand any more is up to the runner himself.  This pretty much sums of the most important aspect of marathon running.
