“In endurance racing, whether the race is two hours or eight hours, the biggest limiting factor is fear. The reason you get nervous before a race is that you doubt your ability to perform when it’s all on the line. The mind game that takes place before the starting gun ever fires is really the critical point of the race. It’s when all your insecurities bubble to the surface. It’s when you have that good angel on one shoulder and a bad angel on the other. One is saying, ‘You can do it mate!’ The other is whispering, ‘Why are you here? You can’t win!’ The angel you decide to listen to will determine whether you are competitive or an also-ran.”

“You don’t play triathlon. You play soccer; it’s fun. You play baseball. Triathlon is work that you can leave you crumpled in a heap, puking on the roadside. It’s the physical brutality of climbing Mount Everest without the great view from the top of the world. What kind of person keeps coming back for more of that?”

Fact One: Races are won or lost in key moments. Fact Two: Success in the sport is, above all else, about enduring suffering.
