And to all my runner readers out there, I have a few fun runner-themed giveaways coming up soon, so stay tuned.I leave you with two awesome quotes that I have gotten from Runners World this week. I love quotes, and these two are just perfect and are my two new favorites. :)

"Running has given me the courage to start, the determination to keep trying, and the childlike spirit to have fun along the way. Run often and run long, but never outrun your joy of running."

Julie Isphording, Marathon winner

"In the midst of regular life, running is the touchstone that breathes adventure into my soul. I can feel the trail under my feet, the press of the hill, the gallop of the track, the burn of my lungs, the stir of wonder and possibility. Running reminds me that there is more to me than what is readily apparent much of the time. I don't always need to see it, but oh how I need to know it's there. Like having an alter ego, or a super-cool super-hero identity."
Kristin Armstrong, Author and runner

I especially love that second quote. One of my faves although it didn't originally apply to running, is from Winston Churchill. I tend to think of it late in marathons when I'm hurting. "when you're going through hell keep on going."
