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.

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Slow milesFast milesTotal Distance

I have never been this excited for a race before.  I knew my training was solid for what it could be (all runs were low heart rate and no speed work).  I was just excited to be physically able to run.

Tim, Georgia and I left for St George around 3:30pm.  We ate dinner on the way down and headed straight to the convention center.  We stopped by the Crane’s house to say hello to all the kids.  We had such a good time playing with them.

 

We spent the night at the MacDonald’s house.  My bus time was 4:30am, but none of my friends had the same bus time.  But I chatted with a dad/daughter from Dallas on the bus.  I found Smooth and her daughter Larissa at the start.  We chatted for an hour while waiting.  It was definitely chilly.

 

I saw Heather B and her friend Cami in the potty line.  Poor Cami was a wreck with nerves.  I ditched all my warm clothes and found the 4:20 pacer.  The gun went off.  They were playing a great song at the start and I started to get teary eyed.  I was just so happy to be there.

 

I stayed with the 4:20 pacer for the first 2 miles.  I saw Susan Roundy and chatted with her for a mile or so.  Then saw Bradley Johnson and a gym guy and ran with them till Veyo.  I finally turned my music on.  Veyo wasn’t as bad as I remembered and actually ran it very strong.  Same with Dameron Valley.

 

My legs were starting to get a little heavy around mile 13 and I took some Exceedrin at mile 15.  All my fueling/salt/water intake had been perfect thus far.

 

Around mile 18, I felt so good.  We hit the downhill at Snow Canyon and I started to pick up the pace.  I never looked at my watch, but I definitely found another gear.  I still walked through every aid station and was jamming out to my playlist.  

 

I found Heather’s friend at mile 20 and she was in bad shape.  I grabbed her hand and told her to come with me.  It’s hard to explain to someone what that first 20 miles feels like.  I was feeling so good, I just decided to go for it.  My last 6-7 miles were all in the 8:00 range (and considering all my training was in the 10:00 range, I was feeling very excited).

 

I saw Rachel at mile 22 and knew something must be wrong.  Her hamstring was acting up and her stomach was sick.  I was totally feeling for her.  

 

I saw Tim and Georgia around mile 23 and that gave me a HUGE boost.  The last 2 miles, my stomach started to get sick.  I think it was too much caffeine.  I slowed down a tiny bit to try to not vomit.  I took a bag of ice and switched it from hand to hand.  The temperature wasn’t hot, but being in the sun for so long was starting to take its toll.   

 

I saw Tim and Georgia again near the finish.  I was all smiles and felt so good about my efforts for the day.

 

I crossed the finish line and immediately felt like I was going to barf.  I sat for a long time and the nice volunteer kept asking if I wanted to go to the medical tent.  So I moved to a cooler by the water table.  I saw Rachel come in and we talked for awhile.  

 

I eventually found my family but had to sit as I felt so sick.  We made it to the car and back to the MacDonald’s house.  I quickly showered and we headed home.  I felt sick until Beaver, then my stomach subsided.

 

One of the things I’m most proud of regarding this race was my mental game.  My training had been OK, but my head game was so strong.  This gives me hope.  Hope that maybe someday I can earn my unicorn.

I signed up for this race with the intent that THIS RACE would be my Boston.  I have since changed my mind (maybe I can actually get a BQ now), but I paid $175 for it so I might as well get my t-shirt.

Karen ran the entire 26.2 miles with me.  Bless her heart!  Rachel ran about 10ish miles with us.  Again, I was able to run the hills SO strong.  I was very surprised.

 

Tim dropped off a bag of supplies at the Mitchell Hollow MCT (mile 15)  bathroom for us.  I had a lovely Dr Pepper and put on my rain jacket.  Shortly thereafter, it started to get really windy.

The last 6 miles it poured rain.  We didn’t run very fast and had a lot of stops, but that rain poured.  This race was SO much fun.  Karen and I were able to talk the entire time and the miles flew by.

This experience made me really grateful for good friends.
