Training doesn’t make the difference of who starts the race – but it makes all the difference of who finishes the race.

You have a clear choice: Focus on the pain OR focus on the end goal. 

Encouragement from others can never be underestimated. 

If you run your race, people will ask questions.

Others believing in you actually strengthens you.

Fact: Some days the 5-mile runs are harder than the 15-mile runs.

Endurance can be built.

It’s far more fun to run with others – especially on long runs.

Get rid of anything that hinders you – they distract you, they hurt you,  and they’ll drive you crazy.

Mile markers are wonderful – they remind you where you are in the race.

It’s great to run with fellow runners who are running at a similar pace.

You are more successful in direct proportion to the more disciplines you are following – consistent sleep, healthy diet, proper clothing, training program, etc.

You WILL hit a wall. You may hit many.

There is only one way to get through "the wall" - can't skip it or ignore it - you've got to push through it.

There is no greater feeling than finishing the race you started.

You can do more than you think you can.
