Piece of Mind

I have been lacking some motivation lately. Sometimes I look for other peoples words to inspire me and to light a fire. Here are some words that really caught my eye and sparked a fire for me.

"You don't stand in front of the mirror before a run and wonder what the road will think of your outfit. You don't have to listen to its jokes and pretend they're funny in order to run on it. It will not be easier to run if you dress sexier. The road doesn't notice when you're not wearing make up. It doesn't care how old you are. And you don't feel uncomfortable if you make more money than it. The only thing the road cares about is that you pay it a visit once in a while" - NIKE

"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will tell you you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough, they'll say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. They will tell you no, a thousand times no until all the No's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. They will tell you no. And you will tell them yes." - UNKNOWN

YOU KNOW YOU'RE A RUNNER WHEN:

  • your first thought when you look at the weekly weather forecast is "when can I fit my runs in?
  • your treadmill has more miles on it than your car.
  • at least one of your websites user names or email has the word 'run' or 'runner' in it.
  • you know exactly where one mile from your front door is (in all directions).
  • you hear PR you automatically think Personal Record, not public relations.
