10 Reasons Not to do a Triathlon

Men's Health Magazine recently included an article on 20 Reasons to do a Triathlon. That's a lot of good reasons to do a triathlon. It almost convinced me to try it... NOT. Instead, I decided to do my own list – but I only need 10 –

10 Reasons NOT to do a triathlon

10. You could get a leg cramp in the middle of a deep body of water
9. Having to wear that ridiculous head cap when you swim
8. Having your feet locked into bicycle peddles as you ride
7. 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26 mile run
6. Biker shorts – need I say more
5. There's no garauntee that the guy in front of you isn't peeing in the water
4. Having to wear a race number – I'm more than a number
3. Having people screaming and yelling at you to keep going... if you're that excited you do it
2. Having to try to reach out and grab a tiny cup of water as you stumble through the run portion of the race
1. Trying not to step in puke from the geniuses who decided to have a big breakfast before the race.
