Favorite Running Quotes: 

1.  

"Sooner or later the serious runner goes through a special, very personal experience that is unknown to most people.

Some call it euphoria. Others say it's a new kind of mystical experience that propels you into a elevated state of consciousness, a flash of joy.

A sense of floating as you run. This experience is unique to each of us, but when it happens, you break through a barrier that separates you from casual runners. Forever. And from that point on, there is no finish line. You run for your life. You begin to be addicted to what running gives you."  

~Nike Poster

2.           A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Lao-Tzu

You’ve no doubt heard this.  And you’ve probably recited it in your mind on a run or at the gym when you’re just beginning to get in shape.  You have a goal in sight and this quote brings you back to the current moment.

 

But the problem is that many runners forget all of the steps between the first one and the goal.  If your goal is to run under two hours for the half marathon then you need to be honest about all of the little steps to get to that goal.

 

…and what I’d rather see you do is to get the goal out of mind completely, but rather focus on the process, not the outcome. -Jay Johnson Process orientation, not outcome orientation.

 

You should have goals, but you should take it one step at a time.  And you should be honest about the fact that you don’t know how many steps it will take to get there. ~ Vernon Gambetta

 

3.  Human beings are made up of flesh, blood and a miracle fiber called COURAGE! ~ George Patton 

 

4.   Find the courage to be patient.

I forgot how much this race frustrates me.  Packet pick up was so slow.  45 minute bus wait.  40 minute late start.  So cheaply run.  It's kinda embarrassing.  

The mile markers and my watch were way off.  I tried to keep a semi-steady pace down the canyon.  Gu at mile 5.  Water at each station.  It was cool, overcast and even rained during mile 3.  Hills at mile 6 and 10.

The wheels came off at mile 10.  My arms and legs were so heavy.  I didn't have another gear.  I walked too long at the mile 12 water station.  Frustrating.  I'm supposed to talk with coach Mel on Monday.  6 weeks until SG.  Time for super focus.

Out/back on MCT - 61 degrees.  Started way later than I wanted, but the sun didn't hit me until 3 miles left.  I actually felt really good today.  I was supposed to hike Timp with the family, but too many sick kids.  This was plan B.

TBT Class (5:00am) - I was really struggling where I wanted to run this workout. The track gives me anxiety, so I started to drive up to the MCT.  At the temple light, I told myself to get my big girl panties on and go to the track.  

I feel really good about this workout.  Physically and mentally.
