So, since the Princess race is a mere 3 months away, my bff/running mate (who is flying down from Minnesota for this run-yay!) and I have been trying to motivate eachother with some quotes. We've come up with a few we like:
Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, "are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?"
If I am still standing at the end of the race, hit me with a board and knock me down, because that means I didn't run hard enough.
I see you. Sweating. Breathing hard. Head down. Shoulder into it. How your clothes fit. How the crowds part. I don't have to meet you. Just want to be like you.
Run every race like it's suicide and it's a perfect day to die.
It's as simple as left, right, left, right, repeat
And a favorite so far....
There is nothing to be intimidated about - it's just another long run where a few more people show up and they all happen to wear numbers.
