My brother, cousin, other cousin and cousins' friend all compete, so it just runs in the family.
However, I do not. I'm in the band.
We played on a bandstage for a lot of people with my cousins, this rad guy named Aaron and a living legend in the triathlon world, Scott Tinley.
Tinley was hammered and took a dump on our entire set.
It was great.
Girls ask me, "Oh did you compete?"
And I reply, "No. I'm in the band."
And they inquire, "Do you play guitar?"
I say, "No. I play saxophone."
And then they melt. The weekend was awesome.
My brother is only 15, and did an Olympic distance triathlon to finish 4th in his age group. My uncle came in 28th out of 8,000 participants. Man. And he was dissatisfied.
He also made a stereo/boombox out of a beer cooler. I gotta get one of those.
