I'm leaving the country soon. The company I work for isn't massive so I'm not getting a huge move fee, this means I'm having to down size my belongings. Being a bloke I don't own that much but last week I had to throw out the old trainers that I ran the Inverness Marathon in. It was such a wrench.
And now I'm looking at my tatty bike jacket and thinking that it needs to go too, but I don't want to. I'm keeping all my race t-shirts/numbers etc.
Does anyone else feel sentiment towards their training kit or should I just man up and look forward to new purchases in the States?
I've seen many a stupid thing in transition but on our smaller triathlons up here in Aberdeenshire, no one has ever been dq'd. Most other racers will advise you loudly if you're about to do something wrong. I think it depends on how picky the organisers are.
Well done to everyone who was at the outlaw at the weekend. Sympathies to the DNF'ers. You're all ace just to get to the start line.
I still ain't dun nuffin...well I'm on holiday in germany so I've mostly floated in the pool and ate-drank too much. Oddly no proper swimming allowed in the pool...we were at old foggies health spa with the inlaws. Its been way too hot...mid 30s.
