Simple Quote Sunday

Although I’m not a fan of re-using quotes, I figured that in honor of running in today’s Miami Half Marathon, there is no better individual to quote than a well-known runner and co-founder of the New York City Marathon.

“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.”
-Fred Lebow

Although Fred Lebow’s quote is geared towards running, the same holds true for anything one sets his or her mind to. There is satisfaction to be found in accomplishing any task at hand, which is just one of many reasons to always persevere and never give up—even when faced with a trying situation.

Simple Quote Sunday

Since I’ll be running in the Miami Half Marathon this morning, I’ve pre-written this blog post and scheduled it to publish automatically (technology is pretty cool these days). As you’ve probably read throughout the week, I decided to run this half marathon to raise money and awareness for a cause I wholeheartedly believe in. But since this past week was dedicated to my training process, I thought it would only be suitable to have this week’s quote relate to running as well. And who better to quote than a well-known runner and co-founder of the New York City Marathon.

“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.”
