Nice quotes

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

I found some worthy quotes, and would like to share it with you:

The desire to improve must come from within, not because your team is pushing you – Nancy Coulter-Parker, an avid outdoor athlete for more than 20 years. She is also managing editor of WomanOutdoors.com

This quote is so apt for us. This is one binding principle that SWET adhere to. We need to be self-motivated and be self-reliant.  Set expectation on yourself and not on others.

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe – Anatole France, Writer, critic, one of the major figures of French literature in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who was awarded the Nobel Prize of Literature in 1921.

Yes, believe in yourself, because …

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right – Henry Ford, the American founder of the Ford Motor Company.

Yay, finally, I have some breakthrough!

I managed a 10km run below 60mins, not once, but twice!

What’s next?

MacRitchie loop. Cut another minute. But to qualify to be a MR25 runner, I’ll need to cut another 2mins or so for my first 5km.

Uphill task. But can be done! Don’t know when. I’ll try.

*grin*
