nothing makes you realize that you're not very interesting like a little box where you're suppose to type in things about you that are interesting.
I play the piano. Does that count? Funny thing about playing the piano is the number of people who say they would just kill to be able to play what I play. Yea cause it's magic, I just rolled out of bed and could do this. Sure like anything, you have to not just want to do it but want to put in the time to do it.
On my wife's first Tri they let people put balloons near their bikes in the transition area. But several others that we've gone to it has not been allowed. So the bucket thing actually has that 3rd benefit ... helping you find you bike!
And I practiced and practiced my transitions a lot. I got it down to just over a minute or so...in practice. During the ACTUAL event I had more like 3-4 minute transitions a I sat and drank some water, squirted some gel in my mouth ... more water. Walk my bike out ... hahaha
Heh ... got your comments on my blogs (the Slow runner one ... and the Ew one).
I'm amazed you were the only one to say "Ew" on bloody stumps haha. And, it never occurred to me to photoshop a better time in on those run photo ops. I bet I can use that same concept on that SLOW sign and mebe put in, 1st Place!
