Tri for someone?

So, apparently I’m doing this race thing wrong as I learned last night while talking to my aunt. When I decided to do this it was because I wanted to challenge myself. Ok, that’s a lie– I didn’t really think about a reason, I just decided to do it. Later, it became about the challenge and the desire to push myself and take on something new. And, just to prove that I could. It was about me. And apparently that’s “wrong”. According to my aunt, I need to be doing this FOR someone. She says that if I do this “for” someone that it will help me when I get tired because it will give me a push to finish (I assumed my own stubbornness would do that…). So, that got me thinking –why do we do this? Do you tri “for someone” or is it enough to do it for yourself…
