June 6, 2010. Buffalo, Minnesota. Buffalo Triathlon, sprint distance.
What does this photo reveal about me, besides that I am a bit of a Tubby Trotter?
- I design good shoes. Despite their minor role in the photo, check out those babies! Fantastic.
- “Happy” comes pretty easily.
- I see a good photo op coming and I take it!
- Despite being relatively out of shape and suffering a minor, but tears-inducing, bike crash earlier on the course, I didn’t quit. I am not a quitter (and the medal was shiny and you only get one if you cross the finish line on your own power).
- I don’t look good in bike shorts. At all.
- I imagine I will continue to spend all kinds of money so I can keep running in circles at events like these. The feeling of being this close to the finish line and then crossing it never really gets old.
