Here is an awesome inspirational sports quote.

Ten of the most important two letter words you will ever hear... "IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME"

This is a quote my 9th grade cross-country coach told us. Since cross-country is a team sport yet mostly an individual sport it really hit home with me.

I am now 27 and I still have that quote hanging on my refrigerator. Not only did it get me through college cross-country and track but it is now getting though adult life.

Really when you think of is all up to you. How fast you run. How much you train or how you work out at your present job. It is all up to you.

When most people think of running quotes they think of Steve Prefontaine. Don't get me wrong he is awesome, but Mr. Skoog said it best when I was a freshman.
