    In my Christmas letter to my family last year (written in the 3rd person), each of us was assigned a superpower. Mine was:

    "In any conversation, if a geographical reference is made, after a moment or two of thought, he will say, 'You know, you could bike there.'"

    This has become a running joke in our family, because I actually do this a lot without even trying.

    (My old high school friend sent me an email after receiving our Christmas letter, which consisted of a single sentence: "We're going to Hawaii on vacation this year." Ouch!)

    Go Falco! Go Sentinels! (One of my favorite sports movies by the way. And a cool semi-fictional D.C. story too.)

    I remembered another of mine while out riding this weekend: "Everyone has good form on the flats"

    Back in college my Ultimate Frisbee team had a motto that I still love:

    Intensity on the Mellow Road to Nowhere.

    I have always liked that.

    Motto in conflict

    On the one hand:

    "Some kind of happiness is measured out in miles."

    On the other;

    "The farther one travels, the less one knows."

    (Bet you can guess what I do for a living.)

    I didn't even know this thread existed. What a great thing.

    When hurting, Jens had "shut up, legs." Mine is generally just "shut the f*ck up."

    When mountain biking, it's the same as when kayaking, "be water my friend". I'm no Bruce Lee and still suck, but it does help.

    Oh! I also had no idea this thread existed. Since it has already been resurrected...

    My motto when things get tough and I need to observe Rule #5 is "If not now, when? If not you, who?"

    It seems to work most of the time. And it reminds me that I am the only one that is in charge of how well or how poorly I do. No one else can do this for me.
