Five Great Running and Motivational Quotes

Happy Friday! I am linking up with Eat Pray Run DCMar on the Run, and You Signed Up for What?! for their Friday Five Linkup. It’s a free Friday so there isn’t a set topic. I love seeing motivational quotes. Sometimes they inspire me, sometimes not. It depends on the day or time but overall when I see great quotes they motivate me to get up and move. So I decided to give you some great running and motivational quotes.

1. pinterest_b36fd0115d“I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”
― Dean Karnazes

2. “I’ve learned that finishing a marathon isn’t just an athletic achievement. It’s a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible.”
― John Hanc

3. “The real purpose of running isn’t to win a race; it’s to test the limits of the human heart.”― Bill Bowerman

“The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”
― John Bingham

5. “Everything you need is already inside.”― Bill Bowerman

All these quotes are so true to me! What is your favorite motivational quote?

  1. Similar to your last quote that everything you need is already inside, this Prefontaine quote: “I run to see who has the most guts.” It’s all a mental game with yourself to push to do your best, be your best, and feel your best.


  2. Great quotes. I don’t know that I really have a favorite inspirational quote. At least not any that immediately come to mind.
