*******************

"All I need is within me now"

"Some people consider the marathon the ultimate endurance event. Triathletes consider it a cool down."

"Pain is temporary. Pride is forever"

"I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match."

"Discipline: Hard work under correct knowledge"

"Man, defeat is worse than dying, because you have to live with it"

"Triumph - Umph added to Tri"

"It is one of the strange ironies of this strange life that those who work the hardest, who subject themselves to the strictest discipline, who give up certain pleasurable things in order to achieve a goal, are the happiest men. When you see 20 or 30 men line up for a distance race in some meet, don't pity them, don't feel sorry for them. Better envy them instead." Brutus Hamilton

"The body is telling the mind to stop. The mind is telling the body to shut up.'' - 1994 Lance Armstrong Ad

"People say that we're searching for the meaning of life. I don't think that's it at all. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost beings and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive" Joseph Campbell, The Power of Moab

"Exercise is for people who can't handle drugs and alcohol." - Lily Tomlin

"Those who are driven are bold beyond measure, They thurst for adventure, they accept the challenges others only contemplate."-USMC

"The physical pain you feel can't compare to the emotional pain you feel, when you quit"

"success is getting what you want.... happiness is wanting what you have."

I'd like to be able to run a Triathlon at least once, but I guess it's not just about good will, it must be a requirement a hard training first.

"Doing a tri is like having the most long and tedious conversation that you will ever have with yourself convincing your body to not quite"
