My Spine "positivity crib sheet"

Rich you will do it this time!! You are more then capable. 
Remember all those hours of training. All the pain all the sweat the tears.
You have completed it. Just realise it now!
It's yours for the taking !!!! KICK IT'S ARSE!!!!!!!
Rich it's the truth !!
Respect the challenge. Stay safe.
Live in the moment. Deal with the moment.
Enjoy the ride before you know it you will have completed it!!
You know what it takes. You have what it takes. You've come back for more.
Looking forward to seeing your Facebook status saying you have completed it mate
Richard, The Spine has your name written all over it and by the look of all your training and successes in recent months it will be amazing. Good running, you are going to rock this race.
JUST DO IT, Rich. Remember, pain is only temporary, pride is forever.
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental
To reach out to another is to risk involvement,
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live.
Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.

The pessimist complains about the wind;
The optimist expects it to change;
And the realist adjusts the sails.

A lovely set of quotes from real people. I am really looking forward to shaking your hand at O'Neills in Birmingham on the evening before GUCR.

Like these quotes, you are truly inspirational Richard...
