As I am gearing up for St. Anthony’s, I am thinking of all the humiliating things that can happen to me during my first Oly distance event. I need your help, and there’s $50 involved.
I told my crazy runner friend, Liz, that I want to simply finish St. Anthony’s. In one piece. She responds, “Well, really whether you finish or not, there’s bound to be something crazy to happen to you, so it will be fun to read about…regardless.”
Now, for those of you who have followed me for awhile, you know I have quite the track record of idiotic triathlon and non-triathlon related events (low speed tipovers, random crashes, fights with nature). Basically, if I have to use my arms and legs, I will create some sort of mini-tornado which often results in injury to myself or others. Yes, I am working on more positive self talk. But really, all I can think about are the thousands of possibilities for wardrobe malfunction during an event. Or poop. Sorry, I always think about poop because I live with toddlers.
I’ll keep the contest open for two weeks, until March 22nd. I’ll announce the winner shortly thereafter!
