Some of my favorite motivational quotes to get you up and running.
Keep your dream in front of you. Never let it go regardless of how farfetched it might seem.
Excellence is inside you.
Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
The difference between the mile and the marathon is the difference between burning your fingers with a match and being slowly roasted over hot coals.
At mile 80, it’s not all that great, but you live through it and then fondly recall how good it was.
Remember, the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running.
The truth is that running hurts.
The long run is what puts the tiger in the cat.
To keep from decaying, to be a winner, the athlete must accept pain – not only accept it, but look for it, live with it, learn not to fear it.
