I thought i'd share this with you all. I found it on a scrap piece of paper in my sons school book.
I will be reading this on the morning of the marathon, as I nearly didn't make it.....

Today you must do more than is required of you. Never think that you have done enough or that your job is finished. There's always something that can be done, something that can help to ensure victory.
You can't let others be responsible for getting you started. You must be a self starter. You must posses that spark of individual initiative that sets the leader apart from the led.
Self motivation is the key to being one step ahead of everyone else, and standing head and shoulders above the crowd. Once you get going don't stop. Always be on the lookout for the chance to do something better.
Never stop trying, fill yourself with the worrior spirit and send that worrior into action.

"If" - Rudyard Kipling?

Mind you then ending is a bit non PC.
