Here are some good running quotes I came across today. Much needed to get everyone me motivated for the week. Let’s burn off all that amstel and pizza from the weekend. 🙂

“Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must move faster than the lion or it will not survive. Every morning a lion wakes up and it knows it must move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.
