“When you love what you do, it’s not a sacrifice.”

T minus 7. Knapp eine Woche noch bis zum ersten Triathlon. Die Vorfreude wächst, die Anspannung steigt! 🙂

When you talk about pain, and pain tolerance, it just becomes second nature because you’ve implemented this stuff in training. It becomes part of the thing that you enjoy most about the sport in a sick way. The best way I describe it to people – anybody, whether you’re winning an Ironman, or a marathon, anything – speak to someone after the race. And what’s the first thing they talk to you about? They don’t tell you about how wonderful they felt at four miles … they go, ‘Oh man, at 10 miles, I didn’t think I was going to finish. They always grasp onto that moment, that painful moment. That’s the whole reason we do it. That’s the drug. It’s that pain.

– Chris “Macca” McCormack
