Subject: What does HTFU mean?

I've seen this thrown around in several other threads, but I don't see a sticky with common slang like there are on other sites....

This maybe a noob question, but sorry, I'm a noob!

It means you will reach your goals no matter how difficult it may seem, that you will not quit, and that you CAN even when you think you CAN"T.  I have this on my Road ID and look at if often for little bits of encouragement.  I sometimes say (in my mind) "H-T-F-U" in cadence when I run.  This is not too different from SIUB!!!!

THis is a parody of Chopper Reid  who is an infamous murderous gangster in Australia who "came good" and wrote a book about his life & times. The guy playing him is ronny johns who does a skit of him in his show.

 Australia is a small island of 20m people, we get our laughs where we can !

Although HTFU isn't included, there is a BT glossary of common abbreviations and terms here: http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cms/article-detail.asp?articleid=1014

It became popular in the bike racing world 2 years ago when Stuart O'grady crashed during the TdF. His CSC team mates were whining about what they were going to do without their go to guy to which Stuart replied, "Harden The F^&# Up".

An entrepenuerial guy immediately grabbed hold of it and made black bracelets, like the Livestrong bracelets with the HTFU spelled out.

I wear mine next to my Livestrong...
