About us

running quotes to motivate

Ever travelled to a race… and had to watch as a spectator when you should have been running?

Ever made your way to the gym…and had to head straight for the elliptical machines, walking right past runners pacing away on the treadmills?

Ever made those first tentative steps in a comeback run after injury….and felt helpless when the pain returned and you realised that recovery is nowhere in sight?

Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like running really is a hugely important and central part of our lives. And that’s not something you really appreciate until you’re injured.

If I had to sum up RunningInjury, then I think it would be this.

It’s about loving running…and hating injury. And, most important of all, it’s about not just tackling this injury or the next one. It’s about avoiding all future injuries too.
