Yesterday, Tim (my running partner) came up with the idea to get people to "sponsor" a mile during our marathon by giving us a quote to think about during that mile. The quotes can be funny, inspirational or whatever. I got multiple quotes for several miles. Here's my list....
1. John Johnson: The start is just as important as the finish.
2. Garren Warwick: What a great day for sightseeing-enjoy every mile and stay loose!
3. - Rachael Harper: Pressure is nothing more than the shadow of great opportunity.
- Donna Jenkins: "Donna would be dead by now."
4. Johnathan Edwards: When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.
5. Staci Slayton Harrell: Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. -Ralph Waldo Emerson So proud of you! Good Luck!
6. Joey Gibson:
7. Josh Martin: Some people create with words or music of paint brush. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop & say, "I've never seen anyone run like that before." It's more than a race, it's a style.
8. Rachel Alig: Actions start out of motivation and continue out of habit!!!
9. Tammi McPherson: “Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.” Bon Jovi

- Charles Daniel: You're half way through this race. Now you make your own luck. Go get em!
14. Juliet Johnston: Hebrews 12:1-2: Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
