I absolutely LOVE triathlons!
I love training for them.
I love the burn of chlorine in my nose.
I love the headwind that slows down my speed.
I love the mixed tan lines I get from the different clothing I wear for each sport.
I love the difficulty I have opening my door to go run.
I love the yells from idiot teenagers leaning out their cars calling ME an idiot as I run.
I love the smell of honeysuckle on my bike ride.
I love the smell of roadkill on my bike ride.
I love the sweat ring around my ball cap after a long run.
I love that when I swim at the beach in my lake, I’m the only one wearing a swim cap and goggles.
I love that people think I’m a fitness freak just because I run while it’s snowing.
And I love that I am absolutely no better than anybody else just because I am a triathlete.
