Triathletes appear to exhibit greater ability to endure pain

Interesting article; I would have to agree. "Triathletes appear to exhibit greater ability and/or motivation to endure pain..." This seems obvious to me, but the "why" isn't. I wonder, does the sport make us tougher or are tougher people drawn to the sport? Probably a little of both. I also think there is something to the concept of our "brain-and-body chemistry growing accustomed to the pain, which makes it more bearable over time."

I run to see who has the most guts." ~ Steve Prefontaine
