Less than Glamorous

I'm in my last couple of weeks of training for Ironman Steelhead 70.3 which also happens to be the most difficult part of the journey.  Saying your prepping for an Ironman may sound like high level stuff, but most of it is downright distasteful. 

Here are the 10 worst:
1.   The smell of running shoes after a long run on dirt trails on a humid day
2.   Getting back in your car to drive home after the above run
3.       The touch of a sticky bike with Gatorade and sweat all over it
4.       Eating warm gel packets from the back pocket of a sticky cycling jersey, or worse your running shorts
5.       Dumping your gym bag contents from a hot run you did on your lunch hour 2 days ago
6.       Sweat dripping off the guy cycling in front of you which lands all over you
7.       That big hairy guy in the pool lane next to you
8.       Naked old guys in the locker room
9.       Cycling to work on a humid morning, turning around and putting those same cloths on to ride home afterwards
10.   Peeling off your cycling shorts after 50 miles in the saddle


Who does this nasty stuff; well it’s that sicko person training for an Ironman event that’s who.  You nasty people, you know who you are …
