Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

This could have been written for triathletes. Here’s a selection:

“Remember compliments you receive” – they will fuel your training.
“Be careful who’s advice you buy” – there are a lot of quacks with a lot of opinions.
“Wear sunscreen” – it’s sunny out there.
“Be kind to your knees” – rest & listen to your body.
“Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own” – more so than that $10,000 titanium bike.

The lyrics are taken from a famous essay — written in 1997 by Mary Schmich, a columnist with the Chicago Tribune — which gives some amazing advice for life. Original words here.
