Today in America, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and his leading of the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Although he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on and his initiatives have impacted the world tremendously.
My favorite quote of his is:
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
In triathlon, we face many obstacles such as injuries, bad races, and difficult training sessions. Although none of these hardships compare to the hardships MLK was seeking to overcome, we can still digest his advice and apply it to our sport and our lives.
YoungTri hopes you had a relaxing MLK day (it’s a holiday in the US) and maybe even had a nice day of training!
