I don’t know when it started or why, but for awhile now I’ve been collecting and compliling quotes, lines, passages, and lyrics that I find interesting. The majority of the quotes I take down come from the books that I read. The other major group is a list of motivational type quotes that I started collecting when I began training and racing in endurance events. Now there are a ton of quotes floating around out there and some have more meaning to an individual then others. Some people are really motivated by a good quote and others aren’t. My interest with quotes/motivation has been spurred a bit by all the TNT stuff I have going on. So here are just a couple that rank high on my list. If this motivational stuff is not your thing then I’m sorry and please come back tomorrow for a post more to your liking. :)

1 – Just a short sweet one that got me through my swimming issues last year.

"The swim will come in time..."

2 – Just incase you ever thing about quitting.

“You can quit and no one will really care…but you will always know!”

3 – One of the first I came across when I really started getting into running and training. (It’s a bit long, but a good one)

“We know that the effects of training are temporary. I cannot put fitness in the bank. If inactive, I will detrain faster than it took me to get in shape. And since my entire persona is influenced by my running program, I must remain constantly in training. Otherwise, the sedentary life will inexorably reduce my mental and emotional well-being. “

“So, I run each day to preserve the self I attained the day before. And coupled with this is the desire to secure the self yet to be. There can be no letup. If I do not run, I will eventually lose all I have gained - and my future with it.” Dr. George Sheehan

Til next time...
