If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner.

Just because we are knocked down does not mean we are out. We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive. Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are the stepping stones to our greatest victories.

When I reach the place of my dreams, I will thank my failures and tears. They too kept me going.

When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal. You do not change your decision to get there.

It it's hurting me, it's killing them.

World class performance is less a natural gift and more a daily decision. The best just practice more.

Perseverance is no a long race. It is many short races, one after the other.

The two most powerful weapons are courage and persistence. Nothing can stop a person armed with both.

Honestly, it doesn't matter what size you are, how fast or slow you move. I don't care if you run/walk, temp, fartlek, easy long run, speed work, hill repeats, run to lose weight, run to set PRs, run because you like to buy the cool shoes. It doesn't matter if you run with a watch, run without a watch, run with music, run without music. It is awesome if you run barefoot, midfoot, 5k's, 10k's, halfs, full's, ultra's, or no race at all. Just enjoy the run, the running community, and the fact that you can move. Just move.

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

There are no limits. There are only plateaus and you must not stay there. You must go beyond them.

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. That's why the first step out the door is always so hard. That's when we choose between settling for average and being a superhero version of ourselves.

RUNNING! If there's any activity happier, more exhilarating, more nourishing to the imagination, I can't think of what it might be. In running, the mind flees with the body, the mysterious efflorescence of language seems to pulse in the brain, in rhythm with our feet and the swinging of our arms.
- Joyce Carol Oates -
I think I get addicted to the feeling associated with the end of a long run. I love feeling empty, clean, worn out, starving and sweat-purged. I love the good ache of muscles that have done me proud.
- Kristin Armstrong -
I always loved running. It was something you could do by yourself and under your own power. You could go in any direction, as fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.

Fitness to me isn't about a crunch or a push up, it's about taking your power back.
