    Well, to be fair, they are correct. I have enough DINK-y money for other things, but I don't gamble much. But now I'll not gamble with purpose! :) And now I'll make it a point to never stop there...

    It is, but being the cheap moron that I am I bought a tri suit like this: http://image.shopzilla.com/resize?sq=100&uid=571990037&mid=163305 because it was on clearance for $24.

    Ugh, last yeard I would donate blood and then wonder why I was struggling so much on the hills when I went for a ride 2 days later. It turns out I was borderline anemic before donating - so now I...

    Stupid stitches!

    To make a long story short, a week and a half ago I had to get stitches. So I was forbidden from swimming for two weeks. Now, the doctor says I need more stitches, which I'm getting in half a week....

    Hi everyone! I'm training for my first sprint triathlon, and I have no background in swimming at all. My training program suggests that I try pulls, which I had to look up.

    So my question is,...
