Daily Running Inspiration

Well are you?

In my case, the answer is yes!

I am generally pretty motivated about my running.  After 30 years and 50 lbs I feel good most mornings about getting out for my daily run.  There are mornings though when I just slog it!  Slow and plodding.  On those mornings I wonder if I am truly a runner.  On those days a little inspiration and motivation is needed and I go straight to Gibson’s Daily Run Quotes.  That’s when these motivational quotes turn into real life savers.


Most of us don’t like hills…avoid them like the plague.  At Reggae Marathon there are no hills!  But the challenge of taking on and conquering a hill is un-describable.  Find one, start slow and head for the top.


Yes, this may also be life advice.  Funny thing:  I remember few of my finish line crossings (My first Reggae Marathon in 2008 is a notable exception).  I do remember the training runs when I chose to press on when mind and muscles wanted to quit.  Keep at it!


When I saw the photo in this inspirational quote I did a double take:  that’s the Norman Washington Highway in Negril at Reggae Marathon!  OK, my vivid imagination but it you squint really hard…


The Win is in the Struggle!  I love the feeling of accomplishment when I cross the finish line but I remember the struggle and sacrifices I made to ‘get it dun!’

Thanks for giving us some inspiration and motivation Gibson’s Daily Run Quotes.

Until next time…
