Today, the Runners Lounge asked for our favorite quotes about running. They could be our own. They could be borrowed from someone else. They could be lifted from a favorite t-shirt. Here is my contribution:
The reason I run:
I run because I want to become a better version of myself.
When I need motivation:
Pretend to be the runner you want to be until you are.
When I’m feeling intellectual
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours. —Henry David Thoreau
When I need a laugh:
People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily. – Zig Ziglar
When I don’t want to run:
It’s rare that someone ever says, “I really wish I hadn’t gone running today.”
