I found these quotes today. I will read them each time I get discouraged when I feel like I am running like an old man!

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop ~Confucius

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

- Oprah Winfrey, talk show host and marathon finisher

"There's no such thing as bad weather, just soft people."

- Bill Bowerman

"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."

- Sir Roger Bannister

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"

- Peter Maher, Irish-Canadian Olympian and Sub-2:12 marathoner

"Anybody can do just about anything with himself that he really wants to and makes his mind to do. We are capable of greater than we realize."

- Norman Vincent Peale, author

"Good things come slow - especially in distance running."

- Bill Dellinger, University of Oregon coach
