Of course this list isn't complete without your input, fellas. Feel free to leave a comment with your additions to the list of Man Laws of Triathlon and I'll compile them in a future post.
Not be sexist, because we all know I'm just not that way, I invite all of the ladies of the 'BoomerNation to submit your Lady Laws of Triathlon.
Can't wait to see what y'all come up with. So, without any further delay here are the Man Laws of Triathlon (so far):
Man Law says it is okay to shave your legs, just not with one of your significant other's pink disposable razors.
Man Law says it is not okay to talk with your buddies about your sore nipples unless running is the topic of conversation.
Man Law says it is okay to pee in your wetsuit.
Man Law says it is not okay to pee in your buddy's wetsuit.
Man Law says that if you swim, bike and run all in one day, you deserve a burger, fries, a beer and onion rings.
Man Law says that you always shake hands with your buddies before lubing up or going to the porta potty.
Man Law says that after emerging from a Porta Potty or lubing up, a head nod "wazzup" as acknowledgement is just fine.
Man Law says one hug per buddy, per race finish... as long as it's just a shoulder hug. (No limits on high-fives and headbutts.)
Man Law says it's never okay to out sprint your significant other at the end of the race. Unless, of course, you have yet to inform her that she is no longer your significant other.
Man Law says it is not okay to bring the Sunday newspaper into the porta potty with you on race morning.
Man Law says it is not okay to bring your own lock to the race site the day before and claim one of the porta potties as your own.
Man Law says no baskets, no rear view mirrors, no reflectors, no kickstands. Ever.
Man Law says Pink bikes are okay for Barbie, not for you.
Man Law says that if you put a triple on the front of your road bike, your bike best be pink amd your name is Barbie, or you're racing Wildflower or St. Croix 70.3 triathlons.
