 “Racing does not strengthen character, it only reveals it.” Dr. Cory Holly

“As George Leonard, an Aikido Sensei, writes in the book Mastery, the deepest satisfaction we can get from chasing a goal is to wire ourselves into the daily rituals of practicing our chosen activity and focusing on the quality of the process.  When the discipline itself becomes the reason we do something, then how we do in key events, like races or competitions, no longer dictate the enjoyment of what we do……Regardless of the result, whether we come in last or get our picture on Wheaties box, Leonard says the true master acknowledges the performance with humble dignity, then goes back to the daily practice of the sport. “chop wood and carry water,” he writes, which is the martial arts way of putting it.  If you win, chop wood and carry water.  If you lose, chop wood and carry water.”  T.J. Murphy  editor of Triathlete Magazine
