Sound Mind, Sound Body™

At ASICS, we believe in the positive impact of sport on the mind. Take our name, an acronym for anima sana in corpore sano or "a sound mind in a sound body." Our founding philosophy is perhaps more relevant than ever and we're recommitting to promoting the positive, uplifting power of sport.

Distance running is as much mental as it is physical. When I get into a flow state where mind and body are in unison, it's a beautiful feeling.

Not every race is going to be great. If you push through and remind yourself why you’re running you’ll find the inner strength to take you to the finish line.
