So this week I really chafed my "boy parts" because of a change in shorts but rather than wait for them to heal I slapped a band-aid on it and got right back on the bike... thats when I realized the true horror of what I have become a "rabid tri-athelete" So I want to ask other Tri-fuelers when the realization dawned on them..I will start off with a few........
You know your are a Triathlete if.......
.....you have ever bandaged any part of your nether regions just so that you can keep training.This includes nipples.
.....your training clothes are more colorful than your children's clothes.
.....you have ever tried to TRI before your TRI.
.....your acceptable range of training temps are between 14 degrees or less and 100 degrees or more.
.....inclement weather means a rare training exercise to you.
.....bricks help you avoid the wall.
.....the people around you question why you need to run or swim after doing 60 or so miles on the bike.
....anyone has ever asked you if you are still doing the Tri thing and you think they are crazy for even asking you that.
.....if you have ever said " I don't care if it has a motor, I am racing it" while on the bike because a car ( AND IT'S OWNER ) pissed you off.
....your bike weighs less than most 3 year olds but cost more than car dealers will give you for your trade in.
please add your own observations.....
