Marathon mantras

20131105-215106.jpg

I wore this shirt today for a workout and it reminded me of how that quote became one of my mantras during my marathon. Arlene had gone to the race expo the day before me and found this shirt. She bought it and sent me a picture and I knew I wanted it too. When I got to the expo there were only three left and thankfully it was still available in my size. I didn’t end up wearing the shirt for the marathon (one of my traditions is to save any shirts that I buy at the expo for after the race). I did take this picture though with my medal. I wanted to share it because the quote rings true for me, not just for running but for life. “What matters is how far you’ve come, not how far you have left to go.”
