21 funny and motivational running quotes to inspire you

Love running? Here are some funny and motivational running quotes to keep you going.

When I first started running, the internet provided me with a wealth of hilarious running memes and inspirational running quotes.

I don’t know what it is about memes and quotes, but they are a bit of fun when you need that little pick me up after a particularly grueling run or if you’re lacking motivation.

Everyone loves a good quote, so inspired by a recent article by Women’s Running, I thought I’d create a list of my favourite funny and motivational running quotes.

Be sure to check out my post on 45 thoughts every runner has while out for a run for some bonus content.

Here are my top 21 funny and motivational running quotes.
