    Re: got any quotes??

    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

    Re: got any quotes??

    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."

    And also:
    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!

    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.
