Triathlon can be seen as a selfish sport. Sometimes, you have to be selfish in order to succeed in this sport. After all, you are out there all alone putting in the mileage to cross the finish line.
I personally don’t see it as such. For every training session, there’s always support from family, friends, and teammates that help push you along to the finish line. This is why I love when triathletes don’t forget to give back and credit these “teammates” after big wins.
One athlete who gives back is Jordan Rapp (if you don’t know his story, you can read up on him and how he is a BAMF). On November 20th, he is will be racing in Ironman Arizona, and will be donating 10% of his winnings to World Bicycle Relief. YOU can also donate by visit Jordan’s page and help supply bicycles for people in Africa.
One bicyle means someone doesn’t need to travel FOUR hours each way to get to school or to get necessary supplies they need to live.
Healthy mind, healthy body, healthy soul.
