I may have to wear it , but I don't have to like it!

That pretty much sums up how I feel about this triathlon "outfit" I am looking at buying off eBay. I have researched everything out there on what people wear for the swim/bike/run and this is one of the few that can be worn for all 3 without the need to change anything, except my shoes. That is the upside to this ensemble. On the down side, I am gonna look like a total fruit cake!
I looked at various colours and styles, and this was the best one. If this is the winner, doesn't it make you wonder what the rejects looked like? Picking a "triathlon suit" as it is called, is like picking out a tutu. I can sift through a stack of tutus and probably manage to find one that is made of black leather with skulls on it, but even though this is the "cooler" one, at the end of the day I am still the guy who's wearing a frickin tutu. Am I being stunned about this or what? Normally this kind of stuff doesn't phase me, but I think it's more about wearing spandex. I don't think anyone outside of maybe Spider-man could pull off this look and feel like a man. I am I alone on this or what?

I did however pick up a pair of triathlon swim goggles for only $8.00 including delivery. They even match my superhero suit...hmmm, my spidey senses are tingling? Thanks eBay!

Today is going to be a busy one, so this might be it for today. Have a good day folks..(in booming superhero voice) up up and A-W-A-Y!!!!

Dude, that is a crazy tri-suit.

I wear cycling shorts with a small chamois from under the wet suit and then a cycling jersey the rest of the way and it works fabulous.

Hey William,

I am not wearing a wetsuit though, so I need a quick dry suit, with a slick skin.

If I was using a wetsuit your suggestion would have been perfect.

Thanks buddy!

Jim said...

Do you mean the "crazy tri-suit" in a bad way or crazy good?

William said...

Well, I guess everyone has their own idea of what cool is so my opinion means nothing.

Good luck at Orillia.

What I wanted to know was if these one piece tri suits were commonly worn?
