Running Inspiration

-

I know what you're thinking "geez Kristen you really know how to decorate."  Not so much?   Oh ok.  Yes I use my mantel to stack magazines, papers and random stuff I want to keep out of the reach of Gretchen.  I have also have had this canvas hanging above the mantel for something over a year.  I bought it thinking I was going to paint some cool artwork or what not on it.  That isn't happening.  The idea I have recently been loving is to put a bunch of running quotes on it.  Maybe in a somewhat arty fashion.  Good mototavation to run or workout everyday I figure.

I have a whole board of running related quotes I like on pintrest.  I'm also very fond of quotes from this book. Yes last year a read a book, 3 in fact.  Don't worry this year unless Gretchen's books count I've read 0.   Thoughts?  One quote?  Lots of quotes?  My favorites are:

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
