I suppose I should have posted this <i>before</i> ordering my new iPod shuffle with some custom engraving but I'm happy with what I chose. My iPod Mini, Enid (yes I named her), has been on her last legs for a while with the battery charge only lasting 20 minutes but I got a good 3+ years out of her. So I got a new red number with the following engraving:<br><br>
Triathlon: Cheaper Than Therapy<br><br>
It beat out:<br>
Animus Facessere Anima Audere - Latin for "The will to do, the soul to dare"<br>
BRICK: Bike, Run, It Can Kill<br>
Think or Thwim<br><br>
I like motivational quotes but I like the witty, tongue & cheek ones better. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
What are your favorites?

Sometimes I think therapy would be cheaper. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
Enough of this Sunday stroll, Let's hurt a little bit.<br>
Tri or Tri not, there is no Du.

Therapy is cheaper...only a $15 copay...but only allowed 10 visits or so a year. Maybe it's 20.

I've thrown a few of my favorites around already:<br><br><i>"Speed work is the icing on the cake. But you don't have cake yet."<br><br>
"Brakes are a way of expressing fear."<br><br>
"The first one to use the brakes, loses."<br><br>
"Swimming is for the birds" - Kenny Souza</i>

This is a backwards message, but I always enjoyed seeing the slogan for a local masters swim team: Start slow and ease off.<br><br>
At the Chesapeake Bay Bridge swim a few years ago, there were club members wearing shirts that said something about it being "just one lap." (it's a 4.4 mile swim).

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.<br>

<span style="font-family:Arial;">Ali also said this:</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><i>Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill</i></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Which is pretty cool, and probably resonates for most people who are training heavily. We're all Champions, right?</span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">surely Ali's best is:</span><br><br><i><span style="font-family:Arial;">that all you got, George?</span></i><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">into Foreman's ear, late in the fight, Kinshasa, Zaire October 1974</span>

Ali was so cool when I was a kid! Him and Howard Cosell - what a hoot. He had some great quotes...
<ul><li><i>A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.</i></li>
<li><i>I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and got into bed before the room was dark.</i></li>
<li><i>Floats like a butterfly, sting like a bee, his hands can't hit what his eyes can't see.</i></li>
<li><i>It will be a killer, and a chiller, and a thriller, when I get the gorilla in Manila!</i></li>
<li><i>Joe Frazier is so ugly that when he cries, the tears turn around and go down the back of his head!</i></li>
</ul>

My favorite Ali quote is this:<br><br><i>I hated every minute of training, but I said, ''Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.''<br></i><br>
A friend emailed it to me when I was complaining about marathon training. It really stuck with me.

<i>"Joe, I'm going to stop it,"</i><br><i>"I want him boss,"</i><br><i>"Sit down son. No-one will ever forget what you did here today."</i><br><br>
Exchange in the corner between Eddie Futch and Smokin joe Frazier before (what would have been) the fifteenth round of the thriller in Manila.

Hobey - Don't get rid of Enid. You can find instruction on the internet on how to change the batteries in IPods.<br><br>

My favorite quote. My sister sent this to me when I was thinking about getting out of the Army.<br><br>
Lewis Caroll, Alice in Wonderland<br>
"Which way do I go?" Asked Alice.<br>
"That depends a great deal upon where you wish to end up." Replied the cat.<br><br>
Knowing where you want to go is half the battle.<br>

From my dad.......<br>
recently...<br><br><br>
"...I believe anybody can do the cool stuff when everything is set up right, but the REAL people look forward to night, rain, pitchin’ decks (he was a Naval Aviator, flew on/off carriers), and other complicating [shit] that runs the weak of heart out of the competition.
