How about this Tri-mantra (to be hissed or groaned at any unfriendly hill)

I'm currently reading You Are an Ironman: How Six Weekend Warriors Chased Their Dream of Finishing the World's Toughest Triathlon by Jacques Steinberg.  So far it's a great read and I'll be sure to post a full review once I've finished.  For now, here's a great poem that I came across in the book.  Enjoy the inspiration!

In my world,
The water is cold,
The wind is hard,
And the road never ends.

In my world,
There are no losers.
Only competitors
still on their way,
And spectators
waiting to be inspired.

In my world,
Victory is not weighed in gold,
But in determination and courage.

In my world,
There are no boundaries,
No limits,
There is no end.
Every day is the last day of my life,
And the first.

In my world,
The word "can't" does not exist,
And nothing is impossible.
