Santiago is able to withstand immense pain and physical discomfort in order to prove to himself that he can still bring in the big catch. He shows unfathomable endurance for an older man, and he uses his past experience to do what most would consider impossible. None-the-less, his tenacity and strength of character bolster his physical strength and allow him to transend the moment and perform his task to completion.
