Running Mantras

Ive been reading in a few places (including Runners World) about how runners use mantras when they get knackered or need an extra boost when they feel like they are running out of steam.........Ive tried lots, "stay strong"..."keep pushing"....."feel the pain"

RunnerDude even held a contest last year, some examples below from his site

Can't Stop! Won't Stop!
No regrets!
If you don't, you rust!
I'm a running machine, not going down without a fight!
"Gotta Get Thru This"

Heres some quotes I think do the trick

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
--Theodore Roosevelt

All it takes is all you got.
--Marc Davis

Once you're beat mentally, you might as well not even go to the starting line.
--Todd Williams

Run like hell and get the agony over with.
--Clarence DeMar

Got any of your own ?
