Tuesday Attitude: If it were easy…

Tuesday Attitude triple decker to mark the unofficial start of summer!

BTW, a very nice article on Tyler Carter who is striving for the Paralympic Games (and who you may have seen around CF)!

“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.” Sam Ewing

“Attempt easy tasks as if they were difficult, and difficult as if they were easy; in the one case that confidence may not fall asleep, in the other that it may not be dismayed.” Baltasar Gracian

“Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts.” E. Murrow

    Another inspiring story about one of CF’s own…go get some Tyler!!! I will be off shortly for a trip to the airport in Philly…hopefully will see all you Phreaks on the flip-side of the week. Was up early for an hour and twenty minutes of self-inflicted pain…60 minutes of zone-5 intervals sandwiched between 10 minutes of warm-up and cool-down…it’s a sick thing that someone devised to rip your legs off and explode your heart…but it goes with the Spirit of todays post…and I am sooo looking forward to a day off to recover, plus I am banking on getting some sleep on the flight…Hah! I am off to the Peoples Republic of Texicans, that country within a country….sure hope they don’t find out I am a member of the militant wing of the Green Party or I will be burned at the stake! Hah! Hope you all had a great Holiday Weekend and have a super week. Still can’t get over what a great time it was on Saturday. That was fun and looking forward to doing a few more of those throughout the summer…hint, hint!!!! Anyway keep cool, be safe, and rip your legs off this week at CF!! Haha!! I will leave you with this insight from a great MTB’er, sound familiar?

    You could insert “CF’er” for “cyclist”….;)
    “To be a cyclist is to be a student of pain. Sure the sport is fun with its seamless pacelines and secret singletrack, its post-ride pig-outs and soft muscles grown wonderfully hard. But at cycling’s core lies pain, hard and bitter as the pit inside a juicy peach. It doesn’t matter if you’re sprinting for an Olympic gold medal, a town sign, a trailhead, or the rest stop with the homemade brownies. If you never confront pain, you’re missing the essence of the sport.”
    -Scott Martin
