I’m a sucker for a good motivational quote. Part of this is due to my desire to always seek improvement, and part of this is to help me stay focused during times of frustration and stress.
Motivational quotes are great for runners, as they help runners to focus on what’s important. Often times, its easy to compare ourselves to other runners, despite the fact that running is an individual sport, and progress is measured based on our own improvement as opposed to our pace as compared to others. For that reason alone, I find comfort in motivational quotes, or as the DC Trifecta has termed it this week, Fitness Truths.
With this being a Friday Five post, I’ve decided to share five of my favorite Fitness Truths with you. I’ve turned to many of these quotes as sources of motivation since I started running.
QOTD: What is your favorite Fitness Truth?
