The other day, I called the PT office that does the metabolic testing to try to get something scheduled. I was talking to one of the guys there and he was asking me some questions to get an idea of what I was looking for. At one point he asked me, “So what kind of athlete are you?”
My automatic response was, “Oh, I am not an athlete. I am just trying to figure out why I can’t seem to lose weight despite working really hard for over a year and having hired a trainer, and having completed a half-marathon in Nashville and getting ready for a triathlon this weekend.”
His response was, “Ummm I think that makes you an athlete.”
Hmmm I guess it does.
With that said, this morning I went.
So now, I guess it is official. I am the TRI-athlete kind.
One of my favorite moments was when I was out on the bike course and some random man passed me as he was on his way back. As he passed, he shouted out, “Way to go Triathlete!”
I quickly looked around and realized, OH, he is talking to ME!!!!
More to come on Bostwick Lake later….I am tired!
