Just posted this in 'Exercise Motivation' but figure this is a better place :)

Canadian rock band 'Rush' has long been a source of motivation and inspiration for me. Their drummer - Neil Peart - is also their lyricist, and always has some thought provoking wisdom to offer.

I tried to use the image below in my signature, but it is a little too large. These are a few segments of lyrics that I always enjoy :)


The song 'Marathon' is also a good one for exercise motivation!

It's not how fast you can go, the force goes into the flow
If you pick up the beat, you can forget about the heat
More than just survival, more than just a flash
More than just a dotted line, more than just a dash

It's a test of ultimate will, the heartbreak climb uphill
Got to pick up the pace, if you want to stay in the race
More than just blind ambition, more than just simple greed
More than just a finish line, must feed this burning need
In the long run...

From first to last, the peak is never passed
Something always fires the light that gets in your eyes
One moment's high, and glory rolls on by
Like a streak of lightning, that flashes and fades in the summer sky

Your meters may overload, you can rest at the side of the road
You can miss a stride, but nobody gets a free ride

More than high performance, more than just a spark
More than just the bottom line, or a lucky shot in the dark
In the long run...

You can do a lot in a lifetime, if you don't burn out too fast
You can make the most of the distance, first you need endurance
First you've got to last...
