Runner's World Daily Quotes ***Updated 10/01/2007***

When I started this blog, I posted my favorite daily quotes that I received from Runner's World. I figured it's time to update:

***Updated 10/01/2007***

"If you want to win a race try the 100 meter. If you want to win an experience try the marathon." Emil Zatopek

"I'm going to beat my body up for a couple of months, and make it my slave." Josh Cox, 2:14 marathoner

"The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep." Robert Frost

"I always loved running... it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs." Jesse Owens

"I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise... it's a consistent reward for victory!" Sasha Azevedo

"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." Lou Holtz


  1. Love these quotes especially the one by Sasha Azevedo. Thaks for sharing. Hope you're having a good week!

  2. I don't know why that Frost quote keeps appearing on inspirational stuff since th poem is generally seen by scholars as a poem about the contemplation of suicide. I guess since the speaker in the poem decides to move on and not succumb to the "dark and deep" woods, some people see it as motivation. But it seems odd to me.

  3. I liked the one by Lou Holtz. Since I don't have that much ability, I have to use the motivation and attitude :)
