Words of Running Wisdom

The truth is that running hurts. Unknown

If you ever get a second chance in life for something, you've got to go all the way. Lance Armstrong

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Helen Keller

I often lose motivation, but it's something I accept as normal. Bill Rodgers

Everything changed the day I understood that if I was to become a runner, I would have to run with the body I had. John Bingham, The Courage to Start.

You train best where you are the happiest. Frank Shorter, American distance runner and Olympic gold-medalist.

The more I realized what GET to do, the less I realized I HAD to do. It was just a shift, just a new perspective, just a new and more grateful method for labeling the things in my life. Think about it - if you stopped yourself every single time you were about to say "I have to" and changed it to "I get to" it might change your entire experience. Kristin Armstrong, Mile Markers blog, runnersworld.com

Remember, the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running. Sarah Condor

If one has determination, then things will get done. Chinese Proverb
