Oh triathlons? Is that when you um, run? Swim? And …um, bike?

Oh triathlons? Is that when you um, run? Swim? And …um, bike?

We’ve all gone through this. You tell someone that you do triathlons then have to sit through this as they think of the three sports. And it’s worse if they can’t think of one of the three disciplines. In my experience, people will keep trying to think of what it is while I awkwardly stand there. That is rough. And then after a half dozen incorrect guesses I tell them and they act like they knew it. It’s no big deal to not know the events or the order, but it is one of my pet peeves when people try to name them and it takes forever.

Haha.

It can be rough when you have to explain swim, bike, and run to people. (But since my sister talks about triathlons 24/7, I can explain it to just about anyone hahah)

  1. When people don’t know everything about triathlons it’s almost like a personal slap to the face. It makes me so sad and disappointed. The world really needs to get it together and start to live the triathlon life that so many of us have come to know and love! Triathlons are so much fun to do and aren’t painful at all (especially those ironmans I do on a daily)! I only wish that I could be like you miss Caitlin! You’re an inspiration to us all! You are spreading the word 24/7 about this wonderful sport! You go Glen CoCo!!!
