You know you're a triathlete when...

Someone asks how old you are, and you say "30-34."

You go for a 5 km cool-down run after a 5 km race just so that you can call it a training session.

You need a picture for a job application and you only have race pictures.

You use excess race T-shirts to clean your bike.

You take more showers in a locker room than at home.

6:30 am is “sleeping in.”

You can't change the oil in your car but you can completely rebuild your bike in 45 minutes.

You spend more $ on training and racing clothes then work clothes.

You've been stung be a bee inside your mouth but continued your workout because "my split times won’t go down by themselves."

When asked to mow the lawn in 90 degree heat, you say that it’s too hot to do that (and you mean it) and then an hour later you go on a century ride because it’s so nice out. 

You consider Clif Bars as one of the four food groups.

You like wearing shorts or swimming the day after a race because your race #'s are still prominently displayed on your calves.

You have absolutely no idea what to do with yourself on your off day.

You are walking along a street and you signal left.

You feel a sudden urge to spit while running but suddely realize you are indoors on a treadmill... at the gym.

Everything you eat is all natural, but none of your clothes are.

The airline wants to charge you for overweight baggage so the first thing you toss are your work clothes. You can always get new work clothes...but good training outfits are worth their weight in gold

When driving over a bridge or past a body of water, your first thought is, "I could swim that".

  1. I laughed out loud for many of these. . . thinking it's nice I am not the only one who has thought that! Thanks for sharing!
