Calculated Risk


“The first is doing something where you know before that you can’t do it. It’s just stupid. Then there’s another kind of risk, where you know it’s possible for you to get a good result. Take reasonable risks, knowing you may not always succeed. After the race, the most important thing is that you don’t have any regrets. Be happy with yourself because you tried.”

Sebastian Kienle – Ironman 70.3 world champion
