I am determined. On many days, I am motivated. But this morning I am feeling blah and not 100% into my long run. Perhaps because I know the time it will take me to run my 12-14 miles is longer than the time I have at the Kids' Club, which means I will need to break up the run. Part of me says wait until tomorrow and perhaps dear hubby will be off to watch darling daughter but I wonder if that is being smart or taking advantage of my unmotivated mind this morning and allowing myself to procrastinate. And if by chance he is not off, there is no Kids' Club, and that would suck.
So with all that in mind, how about some motivational quotes to kick off our weekend of long runs?!
"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement." - Steve Prefontaine
"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that." - Fred Lebow
"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher
"Remember the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running." - Sarah Condor
"Every day is a good day when you run." - Kevin Nelson
"Everyone who has run knows that its most important value is in removing tension and allowing a release from whatever other cares the day may bring." - Jimmy Carter
