Triathlete’s Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
And pray that I may really keep
Myself at rest with eyes shut tight
All throughout this last long night.

Now I lay me down and list
All my gear – What have I missed?
I pinned my bib and untied shoes,
Packed water and my protein chews.

Now I lay me down and play
The races phases through and say,
“Just do your best,” and in my mind
Repeat this mantra five more times.

Now I lay me down and pray
For a successful racing day;
For access to my drive within;
And for my goal – a PR win.

Let me swim and bike and run
Just like a bullet from a gun.
But in the end if I’ve not won,
Let me remember, “That was fun.”
