You know you're a female triathlete when...

...you hit the drug store cosmetic aisle to find the perfect shade of nail polish -- to fix the paint chips on your bike.

haha--fun thread!

...you've been known to apply nail polish directly to skin in an attempt to hide that you're missing a toenail (or two).

You manipulate your birth control pills a bit so that time of the month doesn't coincide with race days

You own more sports bras than everyday bras

You own 5 one-piece swimsuits, and only one bikini

Your chosen hairstyle has more to do with what is easiest under a swim cap or aero helmet than what is fashionable

You don't wear heels because they are not good for your calves

You can't wear Lululemon because your muscled thighs rub together ;-)

ha going off yours gave me ideas:

you use your birth control continuously so that you don't have to deal with bleeding training or racing
you cut your hair short so that it is fast to get ready for work after early morning training
you turn down dates because it interferes with training
you get a second dog to have a running partner

Pedicure necessary to hide the bruising on the toes and to match the race kit on race day!

you wear pants instead of a skirt at work to hide the compression tights/socks
your use hair ties to hold shit together on your bike- like gps units and spare tubes
you are a complete pro at the sports bra to regular bra + clothing change in your cramped car
you have weird hiding places for your jewelry when you take it off for a swim workout
you bring sports magazines/books to waiting rooms (especially in salons) so you don't have to read all that vogue/cosmo crap

These are a scream!!! You are all so clever! Here is my best for now . . .

You want your significant other to give you carbon that is spun into fibers and molded into aero forms rather than carbon that has been compressed for millions of years and carved with many facets.

You'd rather sleep with your HRM than a bloke.

You'd rather go to the pool for a swim on a Friday night than go hang out in bars..

You find yourself running past bars on a Friday night on your run commute home wearing sweaty lycra.

.... Fuck, I need to get a life!!! :-)

Excellent thread. Very funny. I relate to all of above. It's reassuring to know that y'all do these things too.
I'm sorry I'm not clever enough to add anything.

You can get laid 3 times in just over 24 hours, and the worst pounding your nethers take is actually from an hour on the trainer.

Or so a friend tells me.. *cough*

Cheers!

Your bike saddle spends more time in your crotch than your SO.

You know the calories and protein content of all your favorite GU's and bars.

When you hear "bling" you think medals.

Your ears perk up when a friend says she did a race, then are disappointed to hear it was a color run.

Your perfume is chlorine.

(and my own guilty one): Your design your wedding cake based on triathlon.

To clarify, I mean from a "soreness afterward" perspective.

Errh, she does. Yeah..

Haha--I totally knew what you meant (and it was an awesome one, btw)! My response was just a lame attempt to integrate the triathlete "you're not doing it right" joke :)


In a similar vein--

...when someone mentions "size matters" you automatically think of your bike, wheels, fit, race weight, and, oh, and that other thing, in that order.


Also, this thread reminded me of the time I went to get a pedi last year before my "A" race. They always have complete crap on all of the tvs, but that day they had on Xterra Worlds! Awesome.

Fun!

When your favorite compliment is when your SO says you make his HR go to zone 5
When you don't get an engagement ring....you get engagement rings of the Zipp 808 variety
When at least once a month one of your training partners brings up the what's tougher debate....IM or childbirth
When your house is a mess, your roots are showing in your hair and the dishes are piled up in the sink, but your bike is sparkly clean

When you don't bother to hide those goggles marks by make up anymore

When you have more medals then pieces of jewelry

and you didn't cry over "The Notebook" but sobbed and sniffed watching IM

You have extra bras and panties in your car, locker, and workout bags just in case you forget to pack them. If you had to go without a bra no one would notice because your breasts are non-existent.
You start off the school year going to work with wet hair in a pony tail and minimal makeup. That way everyone will think that this is what you always look like and won't ask questions when you show up with wet hair. The hand dryer makes a great hair dryer at the gym on cold days.
Your husband knows that if he wants sex during an IM build that it will either be immediately after your evening or morning workouts before your shower. Fire is the only valid reason for waking up a sleeping female triathlete. Husbands should also be suspicious of an upcoming large triathlon purchases when your sexual drive suddenly increases.
Your husband bought you an Air King fan as a birthday present.
