Looking for positives and enjoying triathlon

As the saying goes, all good things must come to a close. Today we bring you the last video in this series of Essential Triathlon Training Tips. There’s no other way to wrap it all up than to talk about the triathlon finish itself.

Finishing a triathlon is both an accomplishment and a reward. No matter if you run, walk, hobble, or crawl, crossing the line is cause for celebration. Stop to recognize your success and celebrate the journey of getting there. Take a moment to shake hands with your competitors, smile for the camera and give a little fist pump to reward yourself for completing such a tough athletic endeavor. Triathlon, after all, is all about challenging your limits and finishing one proves you had the courage to do it.
