Three more questions:
- Do you have guts?
- Do you have determination?
- Are you the type that doesn’t give up?
If this is you, then you have sisu (pronounced “C-sue”). It’s Suomi (Finnish) for guts, determination and not quitting.
While in Lahti, Finland, representing the United States at this year’s WMA Masters Track and Field World Championships, I met a Finnish couple and overheard them say, “She’s got sisu (C-sue)!”
They were talking about one of the women who was competing in the W80-84 1,500 meters. Can you comprehend that? Early 80′s, running in the Masters World Championships?
I agree, she had sisu.
Makes me wonder what I’ll have when I get older.
