How to look cool at a club race.

Triathlon is a sport for the physically elite and ultra cool. Occassionly the sports cool status in jepordized by a geeky individual. A "Tri Geek". See below for examples.
The featured athlete covers her face as if to say "No photos please"
Maybe it was just my attempt to wave to my friends cheering and photographing.


Triathletes are blessed with great coordination and are graceful at all times.
Today I learned the real reason triathletes do the flying mount/dismount. Not only is it faster. It looks much cooler on camera. By the way I have tri shoes....they just hurt my feet. Wait a minute high heels hurt my feet, but I wear them at times when it is important to look good.
All triathletes are super lean. Display a muffin top and you will have to wear a "Fat Cyclist" Jersey.
Phew! I think it's just skin. Good thing I read every word of "Race Weight"
Smile with the confidence of a seasoned triathlete because:
You know where the port -a potties are and you don't wear white shorts while racing.

I keep saying I'm going to learn how to do a flying dismount. But I'm pretty sure I'll be landing flat on my face!
