Emil Zatopek ( Czech long distance runner, 1922-2000) said this and he knew what he was talking about. He has won several Gold medals in the Olympics and European Athletics Championships in the 5000m and 10000m distances. His nickname was the “Czech Locomotive” for his multiple golds wins in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics where he decided to run his first marathon ever which he also won.

He has also managed to break the 29 minute barrier for the 10k distance and the 1 hour barrier for the 20k.
