Monday Motivation - Victors' shared words "I am a Triathlete"

I am a Triathlete
I do not waste time at the gym. I am in there to work
I do not smile while I am training. I grit, grunt, and curse.
I do not sweat, this is my body crying

I am a Triathlete
The pain is my weakness leaving my body
I am proud of my muscles as I am of my scars.
They are the evidence of my hard work and dedication.

I am a Triathlete
Student, Trainer, Motivator
Increased work capacity is my mission.
Elite fitness is my goal.

I am a Triathlete
I may suffer through a session, but I will never quit or give up.
I do what others won't, and I excel where others can't.
I am stronger mentally and physically because of it.

I am a Triathlete
Rain or Shine
Dawn or Dusk
The road is my playground

I am a Triathlete
