"For some sports you need a ball, for triathlon you need two !"

or

"Winners train, losers complane"

I saw a tee shirt in Austin at Austin Tri Cyclists that I thought was pretty funny.

It had a cartoon drawing of a guy obviously out on a dinner date with a woman. The woman is burying her head in her arms on the table as the guy is saying something along the lines of..."Did I mention that I do triathlons?"

Maybe that's why Lance keeps saying he won't do an Ironman...

Triathlon just means I'm not very good at three different sports.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, then triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.

As an athlete, I am ever so grateful that Gatorade was invented at the University of Florida. If Florida State had discovered it, I’d be drinking “Seminole Fluid.”

"Triathlon - It's not about finding your limits. It's about finding out what lies just beyond them."

Two from the Ironman broadcast:

"There are really just two kinds of people. Those who say I can't. And those who say I can."

"A 2.4 mile swim, 112 on the bike and then a marathon. The man who started this said, 'You can quit and they won't care, but you will always know.' This is the Ironman."

BTW Rokko... Florida State did invent Gatorade!!

That was funny as hell, just about choked on my sandwich.

BTW - Florida State did not invent Gatorade as mentioned just above in a post. It was indeed the University of Florida Gators. Hence - Gatorade.

Although Coach Johnson came up with the idea, the research was done at UF, which is why it's called Gatorade. The original formula was basically reconstituted sweat, which is why original Gatorade was (and the current stuff still is) pretty high in sodium.
The original stuff tasted great after a few hours of hard exercise on a hot afternoon, but tasted like you squeezed it out of the crotch of your gym shorts if you drank it over ice when you weren't at least partially dehydrated.

Is there a store online that sells this t-shirt? I'm thinking this would be a perfect gag gift for my GF.

 "swimmers aren't arrogant, we're just that good"

my other favorite, not sure if you'd call it a slogan but more of a mantra:
you will learn the pain in practice and you will know it in every race

Part of that is due to physiology. Your sense of taste sharpens with exercise (At least for sweet), so what tastes like crotch sweat during normal times tastes much better when you've been exercising. They've changed the formula now so that the general public will drink it for everyday use.

- - Yeah, HFCS
I actually tried Gatorade for the first time back in the early '70s. I was living in Baltimore and after about two hours of sweating in the hot, humid summer sun the guy I was playing offered me some of this great new stuff. It was liquid manna, the most exciting taste sensation I had ever experienced it. I was like that little dog in the cartoons who used to eat a biscuit and go into an orgasmic mid air floating montage of extasy...
So I headed straight for the nearest Food Giant and bought several large bottles. The next afternoon I came home from work, grabbed a bag of chips and poured about 12 ozs. of Green Gatorade over ice, sat down to watch TV and did a monster spit take with the first mouthful. I thought maybe the stuff had passed its expiration and putrified!!

Current-aided swims
Do swims aided by a current, such as the NYC Tri and the past weekend's IM Chattanooga, diminish the achievement? Or are they just a local geographic expression of multisport?
