    During a race, what is your best source of motivation?

     

    I'm compiling a list in preparation for an upcoming marathon.

      Unconventional training method. I think you'd be better off running some.

      We're on the road to nowhere, let's find out where it goes

        I get very inspired thinking about internet trolls.

          Are you trying to catch them, or running away from them?

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

             I speed up whenever the course goes under a bridge.

              Me too. Especially when the trolls smell like cheap wine and sleep in cardboard boxes.

              Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

               

              When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

                I recently had a thug in the crappy neighborhood near my office ask me "What kind of iPod is that" while I was out for a run.  An easy run quickly turned into a fartlek.  Very motivating.......

                  I don't know. Compiling a list is relatively safe. Running can cause all sorts of injuries, which may hinder your chance of finishing a marathon.

                  It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                      What if it's a list-compiling marathon?  He could get repetitive strain injury, carpal tunnel, paper cuts (if he's a traditionalist) ...

                         Speaking of things to do avoid injuries and increase chances of finishing the marathon there is a whole thread for that someplace else which I am not linking to avoid space-time continuum  rips.

                         

                        Don't play any other sports, not even chess

                        Don't play any video games

                        Don't plop down on you bed

                        Don't play with your kids

                        No dancing in your chair to You tube videos

                        If you have a jeep, never get out of it

                            and most importantly

                        Don't ever dry your hair with a towel
