When I did my Half, they had encouraging notices up every now and then. One I liked was something along the lines of (very near the end) "Your body doesn't want you to do this. Your mind has to win."

I really like that .....thank you for sharing...might be adding it to my Sparkpage...love Patton's quotes...and he's right, the mind is the key...strong mental constitution can take you so many places your body never had a clue it could go...I'm sure this will help as I ready for my first Half in November.

What race are you wanting to do?

Hey yall...

i saw this quote and it made me think about the race i'm wanting to do.. figured id share it with you! best of luck to you and just keep going!!

"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian
