    Re: Great Quotes

     

    I absolutely love that quote.  I have never run a day in my life, and last week I decided to try to run a marathon because it seems so incredibly intimidating.  I am taking it one day at a time, and try not to think about the 26 miles I have to go!! But for me, this is me trying to be courageous, to do something outside the box that I never thought I could do.  This probably sounds so lame, but I'm trying to experience everything in life.  I want to prove that I can do anything as long as I just try.  So thanks for sharing your quote.

     

     

    By the way, do you know who wrote that quote?

    Good for you, as they say, a marathon is doing 26 times 1 mile and that's the way to think about it and that feeling of accomplishment that comes with it, it makes you glow for a while.  Welcome to the forum, let us know how you're progressing.

    Today was the last day of our vacation and my wife had a great quote that gave me a good chuckle.   We had just finished running a route that my mother-in-law had suggested we do.  It was a bit hilly.

     

     

    When we return, Polly (my mother-in-law) asks how our run went.  Andrea replies, "Well, it was 7 miles long, and about 52 miles of it were uphill."

    Yep, classic Kardong (and a great truth)  He also noted that,  "No doubt a brain and some shoes are essential for marathon success,  although if it comes down to a choice, pick the shoes."

    "If people relied solely on reason, they would not run marathons. But we are not creatures of reason, we are creatures of passion. We need reason, of course, to steer the ship. But if the winds of passion are not in our sails, all the steering in the world would get us nowhere."
