What makes a triathlete? - By Bryan Payne

Extracted from a post by Bryan Payne on his blog site Training Payne (well worth following/RSS Feed)

"Near the end of my run, I was thinking that "I love being a Triathlete". Being a triathlete means you're a serious athlete, regardless of your age or finishing times. Just finishing a triathlon, does not make one a triathlete, it's only the starting point on the way to being a triathlete.

What makes one a triathlete is when you become passionate about the sport. Something about the sport speaks to your soul, it feels like a natural fit to your personality and at some point you commit to regular training. Becoming a triathlete is really when you make that lifestyle choice."




Simon says: - I particularly like the bit "Something about the sport speaks to your soul, it feels like a natural fit to your personality..."

Glad you liked it enough to post it. I was concerned it would be controversal.
