Learn from the Best
So many of the quotes that I’ve found inspiring have come from women who have accomplished amazing things, like Sally McRae transforming herself into a pro ultra runner or Deena Kastor gaining an Olympic medal in the marathon. These women have worked so hard for their achievements, their journey can be a lesson to us all. It’s no wonder we look to them for inspiring quotes.
The Goal of the Goal
The overwhelming theme from so many inspiring running quotes is that it is the journey that’s important. While so many people we frequently quote have achieved great things, the wisdom and knowledge have come from the process. It’s really the hard work, overcoming setbacks and failures that teach us the most. The outcome is a fixed moment in time that is so often influenced by uncontrollable factors. But the process, the journey that falls under our control and when we find joy in THAT we really can achieve great things
