A step forward is never wasted! Monday morning motivation.
“My running shoes were like giant erasers. Each foot strike rubbed away some earlier failure. I’d made a thousand promises to myself over my lifetime. I promised myself I’d quit smoking or drinking or overeating. I failed. I promised myself I’d get in shape; lose some weight; take better care of myself; be a better husband, father, son, person. I failed. But with running, I could succeed. The success was small in the beginning, sometimes as small as a single step. But after a lifetime of failures, it was all the success I needed.” – John Bingham, Running for Mortals: A Common Sense Plan for Changing Your Life Through Running.
“A meaningful mantra regardless of race distance: In the first half of the race, don’t be an idiot. In the second half of the race, don’t be a wimp.” – Scott Douglas, The Little Red Book of Running.
“You don’t stop running because you get old. You get old because you stop running.” – Jack Kirk, known as the ‘Dipsea Demon’, holds the record of most consecutive competitions in the Dipsea Race, having finished 67 consecutive Dipseas from 1930 until 2002.
