Motivation Monday: Quotes

I’ve been having some trouble getting up and going in the morning as of late. I don’t know about you, but reading motivational quotes usually gives me the kick in the pants that I need to get up, do my run, then get on with my day.

“Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must move faster than the lion or it will not survive.
