Favorite Running Quotes: 

1.  

"Sooner or later the serious runner goes through a special, very personal experience that is unknown to most people.

Some call it euphoria. Others say it's a new kind of mystical experience that propels you into a elevated state of consciousness, a flash of joy.

A sense of floating as you run. This experience is unique to each of us, but when it happens, you break through a barrier that separates you from casual runners. Forever. And from that point on, there is no finish line. You run for your life. You begin to be addicted to what running gives you."  

~Nike Poster

2.           A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Lao-Tzu

You’ve no doubt heard this.  And you’ve probably recited it in your mind on a run or at the gym when you’re just beginning to get in shape.  You have a goal in sight and this quote brings you back to the current moment.

 

But the problem is that many runners forget all of the steps between the first one and the goal.  If your goal is to run under two hours for the half marathon then you need to be honest about all of the little steps to get to that goal.

 

…and what I’d rather see you do is to get the goal out of mind completely, but rather focus on the process, not the outcome. -Jay Johnson Process orientation, not outcome orientation.

 

You should have goals, but you should take it one step at a time.  And you should be honest about the fact that you don’t know how many steps it will take to get there. ~ Vernon Gambetta

 

3.  Human beings are made up of flesh, blood and a miracle fiber called COURAGE! ~ George Patton 

 

4.   Find the courage to be patient.

Cortisone injection into the hip socket.  As soon as the doctor was done, he asked if it felt better.  Ummm....nope.  That didn't gvie me a lot of hope.

I met with the PT later that afternoon.  I was feeling a bit defeated.  All these doctor/PT visits are taking up a lot of time.  Is it all worth it?

I really liked Joel.  He had a lot of good suggestions and wanted me to start running.  Yeah!  Hope it is all worth it.

3 very slow, watchless miles outside.  Whoa....I'm out of shape!  And feeling fat!  It was awesome to work hard and get sweaty.  It will come back.

4 miles outside -watchless - nice and cool outside!

My hip felt pretty good, but I could feel my hamstring really pulling.  I know it is compensation from the hip.  Ugh.

I was suppose to run the Ogden marathon today, but sold my bib.  I was feeling a bit sad today.  But it was definitely the right choice to not run.  Come on body....work with me!
