“Running is a mental sport and we are all insane”

"Running is a mental sport and we are all insane” is a jocular one-line running saying that has been printed on many images. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2005.


14 July 2005, The Post-Standard (Syracuse, NY), “You don’t need to grow up as long as you grow” by Zandra Walton, pg. 23:
...runners that “running is a mental sport and we are all insane.”
