You might be a runner/triathlete

You know you are a runner or triathlete when... know what Yasso 800's are.
Even better - they are a regular part of your training program. know that Crank Brothers, Pearl Izumi, Blue Seventy, GU and Zoot are brands and NOT the name of some obscure punk band.
Even better - you own one (or more) of their products.

...buying coffee you see Kona on the label you think of triathlon.
Even better- you considering buying it just because is says Kona on the label.

...the words transition, taper, bonk, brick, ladder, LSD, and drafting mean something completely different to you than the average Joe.
Even better- you have experienced all of them. know what bike porn is.
Even better- you have posted your own bike porn.

...driving anywhere you are scoping out new routes to run or ride.
Even better- you find a nice, long hill and you can't wait to do hill repeats. plan your family vacations around your racing schedule.
Even better-the race destination IS your family vacation.

...these numbers make your heart go pitter-patter: 13.1, 26.2, 70.3, 140.6
Even better - you have them proudly displayed on your vehicle. know what BQ means.
Even better - you have done it! know what IM means.
Even better - you done done it! see an M-Dot tattoo and can't wait to have your own someday.
Even better- you already have one. subscribe to Runner's World, Inside Triathlon or Triathlete magazines.
Even better- you get them all and read them cover to cover the day it comes in the mail.

...anything on this list made you smile! Happy Tuesday :)

Molly said...

I had to laugh at the numbers, then displaying them on your vehicle...that is totally me!

Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog! :) I love this list... and sadly as I was reading them said "yep, that applies to me" on just about all of them!
