My Motivation

A runner fights his way across the San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.

Ever see those motivational posters with the inspiring photography and pithy sayings? I've always given them a passing glance, testing them, but never really embracing any of them. It got me thinking the other day of what would be my own motivational saying; something that resonates with me? I think if I had to choose I would steal a quote from Lance Armstrong, "Pain is temporary, quitting is forever". I've often thought of this during races when it would be so easy to let off the gas and end the pain, or at least temporarily relieve it. As I suspect with Lance as well, it's gotten me through some tough spots, allowing me to persevere and push through to the very end.

If you need a good laugh, there's always the de-motivational posters over at Good quote from Lance, never heard it, but it rings so true...
