Love that quote! Some things mean even more since I had a stroke Halloween morning and am going to fight to get back to running. Currently working on 21/2 to 3 miles walking but will run again!

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.

"Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion.
"Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare.
"Impossible is potential.
"Impossible is temporary.

"Impossible is nothing.”

Muhammed Ali

Don't let anyone fool you. We're all flying by the seat of our pants. Every last one of us. So why not try and do what you want to do, rather than feel like there's some "secret knowledge" that everyone else was given, and which you somehow weren't? The only secret, if there is one, is not giving up. Put in your 10,000 hours, and watch what happens.

-- Maurice LaMarche (voice actor, The Brain from Pinky and the Brain)

Here's a quote that comes to mind when I'm nearing the end of a long run and feel like I can't go anymore: "It's not about how far you have to go, it's about how far you have come"

Susan


"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." - John Bingham

"That's what running does to lives. It's not just exercise. It's not just achievement. It's a daily discipline that has nothing to do with speed, weight, social status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, where you live, what car you drive, or whether anyone anywhere loves you. It's about the slow and painful process of being the best you can be." - Martin Dugard

"I run because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can't run, what they'd give to have this simple gift I take for granted, and I run harder for them. I know they would do the same for me."

"I run because it's so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can't. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you're capable of so much more than you thought."

Thanks for the link to the site. It is interesting and I will be checking back there!

Here is today's Runner's World quote which I really liked

There's no magic to running far or climbing Everest. Endurance is mental strength. It's all about heart.

Bear Grylls, Adventurer and host of Man vs. Wild

Have you guys seen this site: http://believe-toachieve.tumblr.com/ ? I always check it out for my running inspiration. One of my fave quotes so far: If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.





Dance like it hurts,
Love like you need money,
Work when people are watching.
- Scott Adams

this isn't a specific running quote, but I am using it as my current inspiration - and some days it gets me running when nothing else can:

"Life is a whole journey of meeting your edge again and again. That's where you're challenged." - Pema Chödrön

※ Katie ※
...(MST)...

Life is a whole journey of meeting your edge again and again. That's where you're challenged. - Pema Chödrön

You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew. - Albert Einstein

※ Run 13.1 ※ 5% Challenge - Determined Daisies ※ WMS ※ 199/12.12.12 ※

I saw this on a poster at work...
It was a picture of someones foot running in a mud puddle... the quote was..
"Because I am loving every horrible minute of it"

Spring to Summer 5% Challenge - Cloverleaf

The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

It's not what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. It's how you REACT to the "what doesn't kill you" that makes you stronger.

I hadn't realized that Runner's World had a daily runner's quote e-mail until I saw it mentioned here I think. I get other e-mails from them so I signed up this morning. Looking forward to a daily running quote.

I love that quote too!

I heard this one on a rerun of the Biggest Loser from a few seasons ago I was watching last night and it really stuck with me. One of the husband's message to his wife who was a contestant.

Pain is temporary, pride is forever!

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

I don't know why this one always stuck with me, but it has. I first heard it when trying out for the boys lacrosse team in high school. I didn't make the team, but man, I will always remember how hard I pushed myself during the conditioning leading up to tryouts.

“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”

I love these too. I see a quote in a book or magazine I'm reading and intend to write it down to post but get sidetracked. There are so many awesome runner quotes out there.

"Running can open so many doors; improved health, new social groups, a sense of accomplishment, the list goes on. What I have found is that the key to success is consistency. Just get out there and run, and in no time you will be doing things that you never thought possible."
