A little homemade motivation

I spent a recent cold, rainy Saturday afternoon creating a few inspirational running posters. I used photos from races and from the trail. Enjoy!

From a snowy trail run at Mountain Lake:

From the Richmond Marathon, circa 2011; Barry headed to the finish:

From the New River State Park Trail:

From the American Family Fitness Half Marathon, Richmond 2012:

From the climb up Mill Mountain during the 2013 Blue Ridge Half Marathon:

From the finish line of the 2013 Charlotte Thunder Road Marathon:

Finally, from the New River State Park Trail:

What are some of your favorite inspirational/motivational quotes?

  1. Great shots and I never knew all those famous authors & poets got their inspiration from running marathons. My favorite is credited to Eleanor Roosevelt but never confirmed, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”.LUD.

  2. LOVE them!!! I especially love the one after your marathon!! What a great quote! Two of my favorites are:”Never rest until your good becomes better and your better becomes best” Coach Herman Boone”Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right” Henry Ford

    1. Those are good ones! Now that you quoted Coach Boone I feel the need to go watch Remember the Titans. There may be another long treadmill run in my week because of you πŸ™‚

  3. These are awesome quotes! I love reading them as I am feeling pretty awesome (and a bit lazy) tonight after a hard core workout. Yeah-bring on the motivation!

    1. Me too. It’s funny that as a kid I remember reading (and loving) Frost’s Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and now it provides motivation to my running. Things have come full circle πŸ™‚
