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!
