Running Mantra: Forward motion! It doesn't matter if you are fast or slow—we're all making our way to the finish line. As long as I'm moving forward, whether it's running or walking (or if need be, even crawling!), I'm making progress and I'll get there.
Running Advice: Compete only against yourself. It's hard to resist comparisons such as pace, what you're wearing, body type, etc. Try to let everything else fall away and concentrate on your own feet hitting the pavement and no one else's feet.

Running Mantra: One foot in front of the other. Running is therapeutic for me, and it helps me stay centered. I don't run to run fast; I run to make time for myself and my favorite running partners, my girlfriends. I run because I can.
Running Advice: I think so many people convince themselves they just aren't runners. I hear it all the time. I can't run. Well, you can. I know people who really can't run because of health issues or injuries. Remember, there may come a day when you can't do something. Why not try it while you are physically able? Never take your health for granted, as Chris Schull says! My biggest running superpower is my running friends, so get one! They motivate me; they meet me at all hours and temperatures to run; they talk me through it when I wouldn't have gone that far without them by my side. I was never a competitive person, and you don't have to be. Just try to make it through a few minutes more each day.

Running Mantra: I use running as a way to get "my" time for clearing out stress and general health therapy. It's just you and the pavement!
Running Advice: I have run multiple full and half marathons, and if there's one key objective, it's getting to the start line healthy and prepared. You can't finish if you don't start.
