Today’s #BlogEveryDayInMay prompt: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it

I think this may be my absolute favorite:

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well. - Virginia Woolf

I saw it written on a board at the restaurant Nourish in Scottsdale, AZ when I was there for a race and I had to take a picture. I loved it so much, I even ordered it as a wall decal and put it in the kitchen in my last house. I would like to put it up in my current house, I just haven’t figured out where yet.

But I love a lot of quotes. Pinterest is an awesome source for great quotes/thoughts and I have saved quite a few on that site. My Body Image and Inspire Me boards have some great things, for your perusal.

Tribesports is running a contest where you can complete the statement “I train because…” Participants will be entered to win some prizes like locklaces or tech T’s, but also the chance to get your quote put on an inspirational graphic that would be shared around the web. I decided that “I train because I care about myself.” Why do you train?

I train because I care about myself

Blog Every Day In May


  1. Twigs, a regional restaurant chain in the northwest has the same Virginia Woolf quote in large letters on the wall in their restaurants. I’ve found, however, that sometimes I dine, but not well, yet I still sleep well. Are you really going to do a post every day in May? I struggle sometimes getting 3 a week done. If you accomplish your goal, I will award you a gold star. Do it 2 months in a row and I’m sending you a certificate of achievement.

    • Yep, everyday in May… especially now that you will give me a gold star! Perhaps I’ll have to challenge myself to do it throughout June as well!
