To answer some questions from the previous post:
Kim, I have no ass. You asked how I did the bike ride in just running tights. But in the previous post, in the photos where you see me finishing, I’m actually wearing bike shorts under my tights. I just have no ass, so bike shorts make it look like I have a little sumthin’ sumthin’ back there. It’s a gift; it’s a curse; it is what it is.
J-Wim and Bubba, I’m sorry to admit that no suspenders, tighty-whities, or short shorts made it to the duathlon with me. This kinda upsets even me. I dress up all fun and weird for short, less intimidating events. This duathlon was the first REAL event of the year, so I dressed normally (just like I dressed normally for the half marathon in Jan). But, if it were warmer, the short shorts WOULD have made an appearance...
And Liz and Lisa, I forgot to mention in the previous post that the new Rudy Project helmet was great! I wore it, and DID NOT feel like a poser. I took off the “ear thingies” because they fall off easily when I slip the helmet on. I didn’t want to have to fiddle with them in transition, so I just left them at home. But the helmet was good. The slide-down visor was really nice to have out in that wind - I had it down the entire time. Now, I just need to find some great stickers, and plaster the bastard!
Here I am at the start (and Pharmie’s just behind me out of the frame):
