"In the heat of competition it’s easy to get stuck
on what is not going well,
which causes you to lose sight of how lucky
you are to be able to race.
In the big picture of life, your finish time
or place will have little bearing
on the sun rising or the seasons changing...
Find that place within yourself
that is grateful to be alive
and fit enough to even consider
undertaking a triathlon.”
Mark Allen - Six Time Ironman World Champion
