    speaking of now you are a man, I was channeling young man H Dog on my ride today (and AEO and Wolfie and everyone else here who can kick my biking butt) - good inspiration.

    sorry Tech that was more of a semi hijack than a discussion

    think about it, if everyone became a triathlete there'll be no need to have houses on land. everyone can live under the sea.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Cycling, walking, and bowling. Does that make me a tri geek?

    Sorry, but only road cyclists know any bicycle handling skills. Triathletes have none.

    Wait, wrong forum...

    [i'm a triathlete too, sprit distance so far, but triathlete nonetheless]

    Mine was a sprint too, though the speed at which i did the biking portion was anything but "sprinty". I'll be cycling up a storm this next two weeks for sure.

    I finished last, but i must have been a much better swimmer and somewhat better walker than the woman who was last. SHe smoked me on the bike by at least ten minutes, but i beat her overall by 7 minutes. Problem is the computers screwed up so most of the splits got lost. Its almost totally a guessing game.

    Ah... My transition times were so stupidly slow... I ran over to the port-a-potties between the bike and run...

    I'm the background person, being a race official for a marathon - and going and being a road marshall, etc (wherever they need me) for other tri's, etc. I enjoy them - and have to give everyone a huge thumbs up for doing it too!

    There's a tri at Cayuga lake here in August or Sept - and I've been down there the last two years and there's one contestent who is a girl - who obviously had a huge accident - who comes out in a wheelchair in a wetsuit - someone lifts her off and puts her on the beach and she then manages the water and swims. Usually after I see her go in - I run up to my job where I stay for the next couple hours - I've seen televised races where handicapped racers have accompniment and I'm thinking that's what she does as well for the rest of the race. One hell of a person!

    I don't race but I love being part of it and making sure things flow smooth, etc.
