Here are a few of my faves:
- The only easy day was yesterday
- You don't hafta run faster than the bear, you just hafta run faster than your friends
- a bad day of running beats a good day at work
- The faster you run, the faster you're done
I have a running log w/ quotes in it - most of them aren't actually about running, but here's a few that are:
"It's about morale. With weak legs and a good head, you can go a long way. With good legs and a weak head you go nowhere."
"Why couldn't Pheidippides have died here?"
-some guy at the 16-mi mark in a marathon
"Curro, ergo sum." (I run, therefore I am.)
"The best way out is through."
"It is the spectacle of foolish people racing around in their underwear, the familiar Underwear Nightmare come true."
The faster you go, the less you are slow.
To be #1, you have to train like you're #2.
See (name) run. (Name) runs fast. Run, (name), run!

hey! i'm just looking for "running" quotes, about running, motivation, endurance, anything that you like to think to yourself when you run. a bunch of my teammates and i have dry erase boards in our lockers, and i'm just looking for some good stuff to write up. thanks!!!
every runner has different words that set off their kick during a race, even if you are in the "zone." This is why, everytime before a race i write "just kick it" on my hand. That way if i start to lose my endurance i can look at the quote on my hand. It especially help at the end of a race, when you really do throw in your kick. Its just a little extra motivation besides your coaches and your teamates cheering you on. You dont have to write what i write. Just write what motivates you to do your thing and do it well.

Chanted that I did in a race. Faster I ran. A PR for the season I got. Happy I was.
