As I was out for my run yesterday, I was thinking about my next marathon outing and how I would love to have a really good run, perhaps even a super fast time (by my standards of course). It's all relative, friends
I was immediately struck by 2 of my favorite quotes; these quotes are from two different centuries, one a runnner/one probably not, but still have the same theme - it's the act of trying that is important.
"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail" - Confucious
"The momentum of once step leading to another is more important than the pace!" - Jeff Galloway
A metaphor for life I think as well! So, perhaps completion of each race is success enough and if that PB (personal best in runner's lingo) happens, that's a bonus!
