Motivational Quotes

I just wanted to share some of my favorite motivational running quotes.  They have helped me and I hope that they can help you.
"It’s not how many times you fall down that matters, it’s how many times you get back up."
"Live fast, run hard, and never look back."
"There is no such thing as too early, there is no such thing as too cold, & there is no such thing as too far."
"If you want to run, run a mile.  If you want an experience another life, run a marathon." – Emil Zatopek
"By adopting the marathon lifestyle you can confront your own lions, be your own hero, fight your own battles, and challenge yourself." – Richard Benyo
"It’s like tacking PhD at the end of your name, getting married, or having a baby.  Your life will never again be quite the same, and regardless of what the future brings, you can look back and say, ‘I finished a marathon.’" – Hal Higdon
"I’ve learned that finishing a marathon isn’t just an athletic achievement.  It’s a state of mine; a state of mind that says anything is possible." – John Hanc
"I did a marathon because everyone said that I couldn’t." – Jean Driscoll (Eight time wheelchair winner of the Boston Marathon)
"The Marathon is an art; the marathoner is an artist." – Kiyoshi Nakamura

"It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop." – Lao-Tzu
"Successful marathoners must lose their cool, and allow the irrational, animal consciousness to take over." – Bill Rodgers
"Running is a way of life for me, just like brushing my teeth.  It I don’t run for a few days, I feel as if something’s been stolen from me." – John A. Kelley
"All those grand thoughts of running your best time are draining away.  All you want to be sure of is finishing.   You’re scared that you won’t finish." – Norman Harris
