I remember on the run course at CdA in 2014 “ Chuck Norris never did an Ironman”.


Coincidence: I saw that slogan this weekend at IM Austria. But I did and do not really understand it. Is the joke that an Ironman is too easy for him?
Anyway, better I find: Chuck Norris qualified for Kona at Challenge Roth.

There's a running gag that Chuck Norris is not only a tough guy, but the ultimate tough guy. So you hear things like "Chuck Norris doesn't swim during a triathlon - he shoves the ocean out of the way." By saying that Chuck Norris never did a triathlon, but that the participant has (or soon will finish), then the participant is tougher than Chuck Norris. This makes the participant the ultimate(r) tough guy, which is good for the ego.

It is always a bit embarassing if you have to explain a joke, but thanks for explaining and having mercy with me.

Old chubby man sitting in a chair along the run course at Ironman Texas holding a sign saying
"I'm bored, hurry up"

If you really want to do something, you'll find a way.
If you don't, you'll find an excuse.

About mile 80, "Bet you're wishing you were done with that bike already. " Then around 18 on the run, "Bet you wish you had your bike back now."

Nothing has ever made me want to stop more to pay respect or to htfu than seeing a Veteran standing on prosthetics cheering me on.

“You paid how much to run this slow?”

I'm doing a swim tomorrow that is spectator friendly and have made a sign that has that but swim instead of run!!!

Are you self-heckling [for motivation] or mocking opponents?

I think I once saw a sign that said "Please Sign The Divorce Papers"

oh, definitely self-heckling

my list is - this is all a swim race (1500m mystic, CT sharkfest race) - made my own signs for my family to hold for me

we drove how far for you to swim this slow?
pic of the Boston citgo sign
Go Allison!
arms up, you goofs
we're gonna need a bigger boat
it's a race, not exercise
you look cold
pain is temporary, race results are on the internet forever

I got a lot of stuff from this thread!

There's an expression we surfers use, when the water's REALLY cold - pudding-face

The technical term is probably something like "hypothermic edema" but ... what fun is that?

ETA: GOOD LUCK!!!

I saw this funny one at Salem 70.3:

One banana says to the other: "Wanna hear a potassium joke?"

The other responds: "K."

Gave me a moment of reprieve from the pain.

Heh. At Steelhead, maybe 2007 or 8, the water was extra choppy in the lake.

Some evil genius showed up at swim start with a sign saying 'That water looks uphill'.
