In the past few years, I’ve been in quite a few Triathletes’ apartments for parties, etc. Most of the time, they don’t even need to TELL me they’re a triathlete, because the second I step in the door, it’s blatantly obvious.
Triathletes are often so proud of their hobby that they’ll talk about it within seconds of meeting them, so chances are, you’ll already know before you step foot in their apartment, but just in case….
Signs you’re in a Triathlete’s apartment:
AT LEAST two bikes sit in the living room, taking up more space than the television:
The kitchen counters are covered in random powders or Gu’s…things non athletes would definitely NOT call food:
Somewhere else in the kitchen sits empty water bottles…lots of them…just waiting to be refilled:
Don’t get scared if you go into the bathroom. That dark human-shaped shadow that you see out of the corner of your eye before you turn on the light isn’t really a person lurking behind the shower curtain….it’s just a wet suit!
And of course, displayed prominently in the Triathlete’s apartment for all who enter to see (usually even more prominently than any family or friend photos..) is their Medals!
Race photos, clif bars, racing magazines, and heaping piles of laundry (all this sweaty training clothes) are usually somewhere there as well!
So if you aren’t sure if they are or not and see these things, I’m pretty sure you’re in a Triathletes apartment
I should be a detective, don’t you think?! (kidding)
–Do you agree with all these things?
–What else would you add?
