I wanted to post a little question to everyone out there: Do you ever have non triathlete friends ask you, "what are you doing after work?" And you simply tell them, "I'm going to the sportsplex to swim laps and then going for a run after," and then they look at you like they are just completely confused? It's definitely something I am very familiar with. Sometimes I feel like I'm on the defense and I don't know why. I guess I just feel like I have to constantly explain to people why I would rather get up and swim at 6 am with the group instead of staying out all night partying . Oh well- such is the life :) I wouldn't change it for anything.
