A Few of My Favorites....

Sometimes every runner needs a little motivation:

"Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal"

"Opportunity is often passed up because it is disguised as hard work"

"The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare."

"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that."
"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars."

"We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret and disappointment."

"Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful "
And this one:

"Run and your heart will follow"

How awesome is my new favorite t-shirt? Gotta love Victoria's Secret a little more for this one....

So tell me, whats your favorite motivational quote?


  1. I love that shirt! :D How cool!

    I have too many quotes that I love! But I will say that "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars." was my Senior quote! :)

  2. I LOVE quotes because not only are they motivating, but they tend to stick in our heads so they're available when we need them.
    I found this quote the 2nd or 3rd week of grad school, and hung it in multiple places so I'd see it all the time. It carried me through tough weeks of class and clients and my thesis. Now that I'm out working in the real world, I still love it:

    "Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles." -Helen Keller

  3. Awesome shirt!!

    I like the Shoot for the Moon quote, I told myself that one when I missed my goal in my recent race.

    and my short and sweet Jack Johnson quote, "Don't Let Your Dreams Be Dreams"

    There are a ton of quotes that I love though.

    Oh and the Eleanor Roosevelt quote: " . . .You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
