ha ha, give me a break Dave. Only did my first Tri on Sunday & struggle to get round park run, lol.

Does seem to have mid life crisis written all over it. I bought a Ducatti when i was 40 as well.

Dont feel like i'm going through a crisis, yet.

Ah  I ran of with a younger woman, bought a sports car and got my first tattoo aged 43... Suppose tri was only a matter of time

and Dave bought a caravan when he was 40 - he reckons he's got rid of it but nobody believes him....

Good work Dave

Tattoos started early on in my life, in the days when you could fall out a pub into a tattoo parlour & not realise you'd had it done till you woke up the next day.

Did the caravan thing in my late 30's, just a cheapy, leaked like a sieve. I was quite large so bumped into everything in it. Got rid quite sharpish.

Yes, SD, my training buddy for 2014. You folded easily didn't you?!! I'll be 43 in 2014, got my first tat at 38, and it's still a work in progress. Also got a speedier car, and was accused of having a mid-life crisis. Crisis, schmisis, I'm having a ball. Tri seemed like the next mad idea to add to the list.

I cant laugh - I have the convertible sports car, three bikes and probably too much lycra - although did manage to lose the younger women along the way

I wonder if the two are related, and if so, which is the causal factor

My 12 (now 13) said to me one morning when I was leaving for a long run (with much giggling) you're MAMIL to which I responded "all humans are mammals" (thinking they'd obviously be discussing it at school) to which I was then told "Noooo, a MAMIL, a Middle Aged Man In Lycra..."

After feeling slightly hurt that my worst fear had happened (no not that my Lycra fetish had been discovered) but that my children thought I was middle aged!!! But I figured Lycra was better than something beige from Marks & Spencer, and now I'm proud to be MAMIL

Surely an IronSausage?
27/04/2012 at 20:23
Could be.

My daughter & her mates, who are also 12 told her they thought i looked like Dara O'Briain.

Would rather been called a mamil
