So, I'm listening to a morning show and they pose the question - what is a disgusting habit that your spouse or SO does that you can't stand? The range was everything from really gross, biting toenails to more simple stuff like leaving the bathroom door open. The finishing one that the host of the show could NOT get over was a woman with a runny nose and impending snot rocket. Apparently, he was watching a triathlon on tv and saw a woman going through an aid station grabbing water with a string of snot coming from her nose and THEN (gasp) she did a farmer's blow. The studio crowd was totally disgusted and could NOT figure out WHY this woman couldn't get a tissue at the aid station to blow her nose because that was just SO disgusting. I was actually laughing thinking - it's simple, it takes too much time. Can't waste time on a booger when seconds count. Of course, it seemed so simple to me but I guess it's NOT normal to the general population.
This lovely moment was captured post race so it still counts as a race moment. Muncie Endurathon in 2008 and I was sick as a dog. I had to evacuate my nose constantly. It was captured on film...I was out of tissue...I don't know that ever had any. Ewwwww, the radio show host would be disgusted!I got in ~80 miles of bike, a baby sized run and some swimming this weekend. Of that 80, 20 of it was my 20 mile TT. I have a knack for choosing the crappiest day of the weekend. Of course, I rode on the coldest, windiest of the two days - niceeee! I was not happy with the NUMBER that saw but my effort was there because I was spent. My legs are still cashed from this weekend. Today, I will rest. Now, it's the countdown, less than two weeks to B2B. Woohoo.
