mantra compilation + giveaway winner!

I think my favorite thing about this giveaway is the huge stack of mantras that I have collected.  Just thinking through them all should get me through any race.  Some favorites:


Amy says, "Fatigue Is A Choice."  This weekend Amy is running the Eugene Marathon, and I know this one will be on her mind in those last miles.  (She's headed out there with Beth - these two ladies are primed and ready to crush this race.  Go wish them luck!)


Several people said their mantra is "HTFU."  Could someone please tell me what that means?  I know, I'm old and not with it.


Sarah with an H is trying to like, "Be Bold" as her mantra.  I actually kind of love this one!


ohmmommy is coming back after an injury and has two: "Strong glutes, little steps" (this one rings particularly true to my weak ass) and "Embrace the pace."  


Ultrarunnergirl writes that her mantra is "Relentless Forward Progress."  I actually thought of this one a few times this morning on my long ride!


Rachel would put "UNSTOPPABLE" as her mantra.  I like it because it's simple but meaningful.


The comments on this one were fabulous, and I wish I could make a giant list of all of them, but seriously, go read them - you might find one you love!  Between the comments and twitter entries, there were a total of 73 entries.  I let random.org pull the winner...
Heather at Dietitian on the Run!  Please email me and I'll give you the code.  To everyone else, I have a $1 off discount code good for 20 people - drop me a note in the comments if you'd like it.  A huge thanks to Scott at Outside PR for sponsoring this giveaway.  Thanks to everyone for leaving all of the strong and awesome mantras!  Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Victoria is right about the HTFU. :)

    I use three words, "Strong, powerful, tough." Three things I don't give myself credit for being sometimes.

    I'll be on full on repeat mode on Sunday. LOL!

  4. HTFU stands for Harden The Fuck UP! I use it a lot. I have also been using "Honey badger takes what honey badger wants". LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmudxxfb9A4
