You should place your vision board in whatever private or semi-private place you plan to use for your daily
The use of a vision board is a key method for leveraging daily the Law of Attraction for your training for or
racing in a marathon, half marathon, or other endurance race.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is usually a poster-size board containing images and words that are representative of what
you want manifested in your life.
The Law of Attraction says, "Like attracts like." And we attract more of the people, things, and experiences
that we regularly see in images and words that directly or abstractly represent them. This is the power
behind a vision board.
Why should I use a vision board for endurance running or walking?
You should use one as an endurance runner or walker because staring at one before engaging in
visualization gives you starting points for the scenarios that you will visualize for activating the Law of
Attraction for your training or racing goals.
How should I create my vision board?
1. Buy a large, foam-backed poster board. You should be able to buy this from a small-business-support
store, from an architect-support store, from an office-supply store, or from a hobby-supply store. Getting a
foam-backed board will ensure that your vision board can stand on its own. (How is that for a powerful
metaphor?!) And getting a large one -- say, 20" x 30" -- will ensure that your vision board will
accommodate several images and words. You may prefer white because it will blend better with your
surroundings. You may prefer black because it will make your images and words "pop" off the board. Or
you may prefer another color that "speaks" to you as an endurance runner or walker -- such as the dominant
color of the branding associated with a particular marathon or half marathon in which you plan to compete.
2. Obtain several images that inspire you. You can get these images by entering "running" or "marathon"
or other significant words into a search engine for Web-based images, saving the digital images that you
like to your computer, and printing those digital images. You can get these images by buying running- or
walking-related magazines and cutting the most inspiring photos and graphics from those magazines. You
can get these images by cutting them from colorful brochures for various foot-races. And you can get these
images by shooting and printing your own photos of running- or walking-related scenes and objects -- such
as a local foot-race or your pair of shoes.
3. Obtain several words that inspire you. As with the images that you obtain, you can find these through
Web searches, within magazines, and in foot-race brochures. And you can use your computer and printer to
print meaningful words in sizes, fonts, and text effects (such as bold or underline) that you find readable
4. Draft your vision board. Set aside a few hours to lay out the images and words on your poster board,
which you should have laid flat in a location that will not be disturbed for a few days. Play with different
arrangements, and trust your gut reactions about what works best for you. Remember: This is your vision,

so how your board looks is totally up to you.
5. Wait a few days, then finalize your vision board. Return to your vision-board draft a few days later;
replace, remove, or rearrange any words or images that are not quite right; and glue everything down to the
board. You may want to experiment with different adhesives -- perhaps on the back of the board with some
sample print-outs or cut-outs -- to ensure that everything will stay in place. Depending on the materials that
you are using, a glue stick, a spray adhesive, or traditional white glue could work best for you.
Where should I be when I am creating my vision board?
You should draft and later finalize your vision board in a location that is private and quiet. A vision board
is a very personal thing, so the privacy will eliminate any worry about others judging what you are doing. A
vision board to be most effective should be very inspired, so the solitude -- perhaps with inspiring music
playing gently in the background -- is absolutely necessary for creating a vision board that speaks to you
deeply. And you should be able to leave the draft version lying flat in a location that will not be disturbed
until you can finalize the board.
