15 Motivational Quotes to Help you Tackle Spring Training

Spring can fill us with excitement for the coming warmth and sunshine. But finding the motivation to start running in the mud, or waking up early for a workout when the chilly air is lingering, can still be an uphill battle. 

Whether you're training for the Boston Marathon or just staying active, these motivating words might give you the extra boost you need to lace up your sneakers and get out there. Spring is waiting for you!
