Mark Twain and Ultrarunning

Last week I had a work trip to St Louis, took the bride, and made a long-deferred excursion to Hannibal, MO, the boyhood home of Mark Twain. 

I will post more later, but among the exhibits at the Mark Twain Museum (also the photo credit is theirs) I saw and just loved this quote.  While it's about pirates, I substituted the word ultrarunners and it still meant about the same:

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.
