I was reminded by a friend the other day of a great quote from A League of There Own.
“It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard… is what makes it great.”
This is the perfect quote for me as I get ready for The Dopey Challenge in January, but better still, I think it’s an awesome quote to take into 2014’s running journey.
I’ve started to think about some of my running goals for 2014 and what I want to accomplish. In the coming days, I’m going to have this little saying in the back of head, urging me to aim higher, just a little bit more as I begin to write them all down.
Tonight, I will be running a 5k at the stroke of Midnight at Toronto’s Midnite Run to celebrate the beginning of the New Year. It’s cold outside, so I’ll be bundling up. It’s icy out, so I’ll be taking it slow. However, it’ll be a fun way to say goodbye to 2013, and welcome in new beginnings.
What are some of your favourite inspirational quotes?
I wish you all a safe and Happy New Year! All the best in 2014.
