Misli za motivacijo
“Končni ciljni ni zmaga, ampak dosegnje globine svojih sposobnosti – tekmovati proti sebi – v največji možni meri. Ko to storiš, imaš dostojanstvo. Imaš ponos.
Lahko hodiš z značajem in ponosom, ne glede na to, katero mesto si dosegel. «
(Billy Mills,olimpijski zmagovalec)
“The ultimate is not to win, but to reach within the depths of your capabilities and to compete against yourself to the greatest extent possible. When you do that, you have dignity. You have the pride. You can walk about with character and pride no matter in what place you happen to finish.” (Billy Mills)

Ko hodiš, pojdi zmeraj do konca
Spomladi do rožne cvetice,
poleti do zrele pšenice,
jeseni do polne police,
pozimi do snežne kraljice,
v knjigi do zadnje vrstice,
v življenju do prave resnice,
v sebi do rdečice čez eno in drugo lice.
A če ne prideš ne prvič ne drugič
do krova in pravega kova

Some people create with words, or with music, or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say: “I’ve never seen anyone run like that before.” It’s more then just a race, it’s a style. It’s doing something better then anyone else. It’s being creative.”
There comes a point when nothing else matters. The sun is rising, the heart is pumping, the weightiness of life is lifted and the soul is set free. Only a runner knows the feeling…
Videl boš, kar drugi ne vidijo. Slišal boš, kar drugi ne slišijo. Čutil boš, kar drugi ne čutijo. Iskal boš, kar ni bilo nikoli izgubljeno; lovil boš, kar ni nikomur ušlo.
“People ask why I run. I say, “If you have to ask, you will never understand”. It is something only those select few know. Those who put themselves through pain, but know, deep down, how good it really feels.” (Erin Leonard)
“I run because it’s my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I’m going where I’m going and I’m already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise… it’s a consistent reward for victory!” (Sasha Azevedo)
All you need is that perfect song on that perfect run to feel infinite.
That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run.
Ko si prišel tako daleč, da ne zmoreš niti koraka več, si prišel na pol poti, ki si jo sposoben prehoditi.
‘Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them -a desire, a dream, a vision.’ (Muhammad Ali)
“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity. The relationship between the soundness of the body and the activities of the mind is subtle and complex. Much is not yet understood. But we do know what the Greeks knew: that intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong; that hardy spirits and tough minds usually inhabit sound gods. ” (John F.Kennedy)
‘My thoughts before a big race are usually pretty simple. I tell myself: Get out of the blocks, run your race, stay relaxed. If you run your race, you’ll win… channel your energy. Focus.’ (Carl Lewis)
Cross Country is not about running for long periods of time, It’s about chasing after your dreams.
Whatever you aspire to do, there will always be people who tell you you can’t do it, you’re not good enough, it will never happen. What I’ve learned is that some of them are right, most of them are wrong, and all of them need to sit down and shut up.
There is no bad weather, only soft people….
Vreme je le informacija, kako se obleči.
“Ask yourself: ‘Can I give more?’. The answer is usually: ‘Yes’.” (Paul Tergat)
“I wasn’t born with any innate talent. I’ve never been naturally gifted at anything. I always had to work at it. The only way I knew how to succeed was to try harder than anyone else. Dogged persistence is what got me through life. But here was something I was half-decent at. Being able to run great distances was the one thing I could offer the world. Others might be faster, but I could go longer. My strongest quality is that I never give up.”
