Ironman Melbourne: 4 sleeps to go - words of wisdom?

There are so many words of wisdom to inspire - a few that are repeated amongst triathletes include:

 - or "memories last forever"


You can quit and nobody will ever care 
but you will always know..

And one to repeat to yourself when you are digging deep....

A few other favourites of ours:

From our friend, Tim:
"Every decision you make, you make about yourself"
From runner Steve Prefontaine:
"A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more."
And anon:
 "You finish last in 100% of the races you don't start."

So here is hoping all of you competing in Ironman Melbourne get to the starting line, make the right decisions for you, manage to push through the pain, do the best you can on the day and come across the finish line with a medal and many special memories.

Final words from the mouth of my Ironman:
   Bring it on!
