Vote for Quotes!

I decided to put a motivational quote on the back of my shirt for the marathon. I've narrowed it down, but am open to new suggestions! If you suggest a new one, the only rule is it has to be a short quote so people can read it.

I'm not sure where you guys get those fancy polls, so just leave comments!

Here are the ones I have it narrowed down to:

"The real purpose of running isn't to win a race; it's to test the limits of the human heart."
- Bill Bowerman

"When everything seems to be going against you,
remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it."
- Henry Ford

"The difference between the unattainable and the attainable lies in a person's determination."

"Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true."
- Leon J. Suenes

"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals."

Thanks for answering my question homie! Will take note of that when the snow starts coming.

Dang you're a speedy one with the posts. I get done with my roll and then I see you have 2 new ones LOL

Anyway . . . I dig the 1st one and also the 3rd one. Either of those. Let me just tell you . . .from reading your past couple posts and the energy exuded from them. I think you'll be FINE come race day. You've got the same amount of energy I have after about 12 cups of coffee LMAO!

I like the first one.

ARe you sure all this will fit on a shirt? Just wondering.

Fun idea for sure.

I think that you should go with a Bill Rogers quote from around mile 16 of his first marathon: "Why couldn't Phedippedes have died here?"

I kid, I kid...
