I am a new Marathon Mommy!

I am a new Marathon Mommy! I have been reading your posts for a few weeks now and I thought I better join in on the fun! I am anticipating the Salt Lake Marathon finish line and I feel more consumed and nervous by it as the day gets closer. Sooooo...THANK YOU to all of you for thinking some of my same thoughts! I am learning a lot from you pros! I have been on a quest for inspiration and here are a few quotes I liked:

“Never ignore the little things.

Remember 12 inches make a foot,

3 feet make a yard,

1760 yards make a mile,

and 26 miles make a marathon.

Attack the challenge of a marathon one inch at a time.”

"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 MBA-Presidents Sep-07

"Runners just do it - they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first." - Author Unknown

"The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life." - George Sheehan

So what are some of your favorite inspirational quotes? Happy Day and Keep Moving Forward!!!!

Hi and welcome! I love running quotes. They really inspire me. Most of my favorites are from George Sheehan. Or Nike slogans. :-)

"There is no finish line."

"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be”

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.”

"Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it." - Oprah Winfrey

“You can never be sure. That’s what makes the marathon both fearsome and fascinating. The deeper you go into the unknown, the more uncertain you become. But then you finish. And you wonder later, “How did I do that?” This question compels you to keep making the journey from the usual to the magical.” --Joe Henderson

Okay, I could do this forever! I love running!

We are so glad you have joined us. You will be amazed how all of these women will bless your life. We can't wait to get to know you better.

"I run because I can." Was that JP who said that? Or Chelle? Or was someone quoting someone else who said that? I can't remember... but I've thought about it a lot lately. I run because I can - my body can. And my will makes it happen. I'm so grateful I CAN run. Being able to run long distances says a lot about the strength of not only one's own body, but also their character.

*toot toot*

Did you just hear someone tooting their own horn? :)

sweet, I've been quoted. LOL

Let's just hope I'm not subconciously plagiarizing someone. :)
