It’s All About Track .. More Track Quotes











People that are true Track and Field fans, lovers nuts about track and field have a language and phraseology(is that a word???) That is distinctively Track and Field. I  posted in the past many quotes that were fun,silly and motivating.

Check out the ones I recently received from my last post on this topic and hearing it screamed out  in andaround the stadium. The list grows . Here’s the total list thus far .

  • *Confidence is contagious- so is a lack of confidence. *
  • I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.
  • You can’t coach heart, you can never coach desire, they must always come from within. Rules may be learned, and skill developed, But you cannot be taught the will to win. You must reach a little deeper to bring out your best, you must be your own motivation. Keep going, Never Quit, You have to find a reason. You are your own strength, Your own Motivation
  • If you can accept losing, you can’t win. *
  • *Success demands singleness of purpose.*
