Crossing Quotations

A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.
Groucho Marx

What I think a lot of great marathon runners do is envision crossing that finish line. Visualization is critical. But for me, I set a lot of little goals along the way to get my mind off that overwhelming goal of 26.2 miles. I know I've got to get to 5, and 12, and 16, and then I celebrate those little victories along the way.
Bill Rancic

Wayne Gretzky
