Guilty

Note: The picture is now the "purchased" copy with better clarity. It was too good not to own.

I don't know...I feel like the kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Me 'n 23 year old Gator Girl here traded places for the first half of the bike, until she got tuckered out with all the hills. Yea, I kicked her ass. She passed me Mile 1 on the run, of course....

TriSherpaDi takes so many good pictures, normally, that I don't need to and I don't like to do a lot of copying of photographer's photos....this one is so funny, I should probably buy it.

I'm also guilty of not doing enough work on editing the podcast. Blame me - Tacboy and I have already got enough material recorded for Episode 7 and for most of Episode 8. We'll be checking in with Ironman Arizona Correspondents and will include that in Ep 8, so I'd better get on the stick and knock out 7.

I'll tell ya, when I get home at night after cutting grass all day, then doing some training, then perhaps, doing a tax return or two, I'm not much for anything else except watching TV until I fall asleep in my Chair. Ok, pity party for the Bigun is over.

Edit: the guilt is not, I repeat, NOT from drafting - she is in the process of passing me in this shot. Just FYI....

So, ya got busted drafting, getting chicked, AND checking out that chicks ass..... funny.
You know, my grampa was full of wise little sayings, of which his most famous was "Touch with your eyes, not with your hands."
It really is a great shot though.

The photo just looks surreal to me - like you were totally photoshopped in or something. But yeah, it is pretty hilarious too...

You gotta do what you gotta do to keep pushing up those hills. It looks like you definitely have a system that works.

Brent Buckner said...

Sometimes it's difficult to maintain non-drafting distance....

Wheel sucker!
Yeah, you should buy it..love the expression on your face tho!

Supalinds said...

Perfect! Never seen a better tri shot in my life!!

S. Baboo said...

Never thought you were drafting big guy. I was going to remark that either you are passing on the right or you got your race pic taken getting droped on the bike by a sweet youg thing. (You totally should have said you were caught passing on the right because missy was blocking you).

Comm's said...

First, very man alive would allow drafting in that photographic situation.

Second, is that Lana? Just sayin'

haha

excel man said...

The thing that's really amazing about the photo is that it looks like you are using a gear other than 53/12! Wow!

I just have to say that Ryan's avatar is very funny!

Tarabay said...

Steve Stenzel said...

I'd trade places back-and-forth with gator girl ANY day!!

Lana said...

That one's a keeper for sure! And doesn't surprise me in the least...

LOL

Taconite Boy said...

With Lana...no surprise whatsoever

TRI-ROB said...

Hey! You want a rainbow with all the whining? Why do you look like you're in labor as you're getting your ass handed to you on the bike? Weird.

The Clyde said...

I just laughed out loud....great pic.

greyhound said...

You have to buy that pic and put it in your header.

Question: why would you WANT to pass her? I'm just sayin'

The pursuit of happiness?
