I love reading running quotes for inspiration and I have to admit that some of the best ones come from running shoe companies. Their quotes are usually short and to the point, so they're easy to remember. Check out these quotes from major running shoe companies -- such as Nike, New Balance and Asics -- if you're looking for some motivation.
