Monday Meditation: Your Own Power

14 Jan

Hope everyone had a great Monday! Here’s a little motivation to get you through the rest of the week:

“I always loved running…it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.”

– Jesse Owens, 1936 Summer Olympian


Love, love, LOVE this quote! I have to say I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Owens here. The greatest thing about running is that it is completely based on your own strength and ability. What is within your heart, mind, and body is what will take you on the journey and determine your success. Just remember – when you hit the road at 5:00 AM, reach a new distance, choose a new route, take it slow and easy, cross the finish  line, or hit a PR…..YOU did that and YOU are powerful! So keep it up!
