Heart and Courage at Ironman Hawaii

Posted: Oct 24 2013

I think we have mentioned it enough but Coeur is French for heart and the root of the noun courage. Or more precisely the abstract noun “courage” since I suppose you can’t actually touch it. While we’re on a definitional/grammatical tangent, I’ll go on to mention that courage is defined as the ability or willingness to confront fear, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.

 

So, why does that matter? To answer that question, we’ll have to go back a couple of months.
