To add to my list, these are longer, but these have also been beneficial:

"I would just think of my dad (a former pro cyclist who has Parkinson's). I knew that if my dad could be in my shoes for one day—if all he had to do was struggle on a bike for six hours, but be healthy and fully functional—he would be me on that day in a heartbeat." - Taylor Phinney, talking about why he didn't quit a tough race when he was dead last.

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt "Citizenship in a Republic" speech, Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910.

It's funny, there are so many people who hate even the thought of running, or even of jogging slowly! I can't imagine my life without it.
