Motivation Monday #7

Motivation Monday

The most important day in any running program is rest. Rest days give your muscles time to recover so you can run again. Your muscles build in strength as you rest.
Hal Higdon

Life (and running) is not all about time but about our experiences along the way.
Jen Rhines

To keep from decaying, to be a winner, the athlete must accept pain - not only accept it, but look for it, live with it, learn not to fear it.
Dr. George Sheehan

Winning is not about headlines and hardware [medals]. It’s only about attitude. A winner is a person who goes out today and every day and attempts to be the best runner and best person he can be… Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up.
Amby Burfoot

Congratulations to everyone who ran a race this past weekend!  I hope you are wearing your Medal with Pride today, at the office or just running to the grocery store.
If your going to run, Run Half Crazy
