Reflect on the journey no matter the result
No one is involved in triathlon solely for the health and fitness benefits—20 minutes on the StairMaster is cheaper and easier. We love the sport for a variety of reasons: the social aspects and the training camaraderie, the chance to race in amazing destinations, or for the bragging rights of being a triathlete. Remind yourself of the reasons you do the sport—it’s rarely just for the splits. Think about the cool stuff you do because you race and the great people you meet along the way.
