Running has always been an integral part of my adult life. It’s my sanity check. It’s my alone time. It has surely provided me so much more than the occasional ache or pain. Whenever I’m on a run and I don’t think I can finish strong, I have to remind myself, “Caroline. You ran 2 freakin’ half-marathons. Get a grip. Now go and rock it out.”
Running does that. It brings out your tough girl or guy mentality and reminds you that you’re strong and capable no matter your speed.
So, in honor of National Running Day, (Yeah, I know. I guess that’s a thing) I’ve put together some of my favorite running quotes.
Let the inspiration seep in, my friends.
And, for laughs…because it’s true.
Claude (Ironman) M. says
All above is so true! How is your Achilles, what have you decided for it?
Caroline Peterson says
It’s still a bit sore, but seems better. I’m giving it a couple more weeks before I go for a run–I want to run in each country we visit on our upcoming trip. I’m still doing strength training and have iced it at night. I need to be better about keeping it up during the day at work.
