There are many things in life that should be taken seriously. I tend to think triathlon should not always be top of list. Don't get me wrong - I spend an enormous amount of time and energy dedicated to the sport, and my job. But that being said, in training and on race day don't be afraid to laugh at yourself occasionally please! This sport is crazy, this sport is fun, and it is incredibly hard. When things go wrong remember although many of us tend to think life revolves around sport - it most definitely does not. Happy training & racing!
