but I don't so they're dicks
I have no problem with them, or people who do Tough Mudder or whatever, as long as they don't bang on incessantly about doing them.
I admire them in a way but how do they find time to do all that training and how on earth do they afford all that equipment?? Are they sponsored?
Not sure I liked it one little bit.
How does it work for a spectator? A bit like following people round a golf course?
met my mate who's girlfriend is a triathlete. We went and drank coffee and then I left him in a field to wait for them all to arrive.
Not really a spectator sport.
More like trying athletes!
they should have a climbing round or something. Or maybe pogo sticks.
Triathlon is getting a bit too popular, to ne tbh. Thinking of getting into the quadrathlon scene.
(Tri is definitely a bit of a midlifecrisis thing, but the variation makes training more interesting. Personally I'm not much cop at any of the individual bits - just playing percentages and hoping that things average out.)
Also I enjoy running, cycling and swimming, but the thought of doing a tri is totally unappealing. Drilling how fast you can get a wetsuit off? Fuck off mate.
Also you'd have to be a Full Kit Wanker for three different sports. God no.
cycling into work on his Boardman bike with the Triathlon number still attached.
It's like kids who leave festival wristbands on.
cunts to a man
Always the epitome of 'All the gear, no idea'. Commuting 6 miles on a £2000 bike.
Our group rode to the rules of the road. Which is more than can be said for the numerous twunts we saw in suits on bromptons, or on mountainbikes with knees out cos the saddle is nine inches too low, cycling on the footway and jumping red lights.
Don't have a full kit. Got my trisuit from Lidl. Come at me.
(The thing about the race numbers being like festival wristbands is right, though.
