Your Know Your A Triathlete When...

  • You usually wake up at 4.00 in the morning but don’t get to work until way after 10:00.
  • Somebody hands you a cup of water and you have to restrain yourself from pouring it over your head.
  • Your car has at least one energy bar wrapper and water bottle on the floor.
  • You have more shoes than you spouse.
  • Cars pass you on the road when you’re driving and you either drop back to get out of draft zone or speed up to attack!
  • You need a photo for a job application and you only have race pictures.
  • You haven’t bought work clothes in two years, yet you own bike shorts made by every manufacturer under the sun and can recite the merits of Coolmax, Supplex, etc. in your sleep!
  • You think there are only 2 seasons in a year; racing season and off-season.
  • You clean your bike more often than your car.
  • Your bike has a name.
  • When asked, how old are you? You answer 35-39.
  • You name your two new puppies Kona and Hawi.
  • You are convinced that if you rest more than one day, your muscles will atrophy, your ultra-fit body will turn into a pile of goo and everyone in your age group will beat you.
  • You bring bottled water to a party so that you’re properly hydrated for the next morning’s long run. Everyone else at the party also brought their own bottled water because you don’t have a social life outside of triathlon. Oh yeah, and they all showed up 7pm and left by 10pm.
If you have any other ones please feel free to share
