Does this help to motivate you?

"The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You always go too far for your body. You must handle the pain with strategy...It is not age; it is not diet. It is the will to succeed." --Jacqueline Gareau

"I believe in the runner's high, and I believe that those who are passionate about running are the ones who experience it to the fullest degree possible. To me, the runner's high is a sensational reaction to a great run! It's an exhilarating feeling of satisfaction and achievement. It's like being on top of the world, and truthfully... there's nothing else quite like it!" --Sasha Azevedo

"You have a choice. You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face." --Gatorade commercial

I like the quotes. I am definitely needing them right now. It is so cold and windy. I can handle the cold but pkut them both together and I just hate it. I hope I can get at least one more long run in this week.

Sarah, Gertrude just showed up here too - I think I'll just cry, no wait... shoot someone, no wait... scream, no wait...laugh, no wait... I'm too mad to do anything accept eat!!! I just ate my weight in chocolate after I had a quarter pound hamburger, Onion Rings, Fries and a Diet Coke! To quote Karleen, "Run Fatty Run"
Anyway...Great Quotes Katrina! I liked them alot, I will repeat them over and over on my long run tomorrow. Weather permitting

Well, I am glad Gertrude came today Happy Valentines Day to me! It's better than having cramps the day of the race and I woke up thinking I am going to eat whatever the hell I want to today and not care and not run because I feel like pooh pooh. I couldn't understand because I feel like I've been running strong but then the visitor came with a vengence and it put a kabosh on it. It's amazing to me how that event can change how you feel, how you think, and your emotions so easily. NOT FAIR! People said after you have babies it gets easier and if twins didn't change that I don't know what will. Liar Liars pant on fire! I feel better now ladies thank you for letting me vent. That plus I had to. We went to the new Draper Temple Open house it was awesome! My little girls were so excited and said they can't wait to get married here and be really beautiful. Love you all!
