It’s Wednesday. Time for a little mid-week Running Motivation
“Challenging yourself to accomplish more than you know you can is never stupid—it helps show you what you are capable of. It creates a new frame of reference, one you can draw upon in the face of other things that are perceived as being tough in your life. It shows you possibilities you didn’t know existed.” – Joe De Sena, Spartan Up!: A Take-No-Prisoners Guide to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Peak Performance in Life
“I had been deluding myself for years that the purpose of running was to win races, that if I trained hard enough and smart enough and pushed my body beyond all limits, I’d somehow come out on top. It took finally winning a race to expose the flaws of my logic. Winning is a nice reward—don’t get me wrong—but glory isn’t the payoff. This may sound cliché, but the reward is living the lifestyle and embracing the journey. It’s not only about finishing, it’s about moving forward. It was a lesson I took to heart, and I was glad I did.” – Bart Yasso, My Life on the Run: The Wit, Wisdom, and Insights of a Road Racing Icon
