About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Oval Sticker Overkill!

Triathletes, Runners and Multi-Sport fanatics are anything but humble. Gosh darn it, we're proud of our achievements and we want to brag, brag, brag. Unfortunately, we're also rather smug with the multitude of oval sticker displays.
Take for instance--MY CAR (Yes, I have a toaster and LOVE IT)

Let's start with the Top:

T3: "I'm with the best triathlon team in Austin. Sorry you're not. Maybe next season...If you can catch us."

GZL: "No, it's not guzzle, contrary to what my college drinking years might imply. It means Gazelle. And if you don't know what that is in Austin, then you're clearly not a runner."

140.6: "That, my lowly 5k running friend, is the distance of an Ironman. My car might not get that good of gas mileage, but my body can. Only the best of the best can achieve this, so think twice about being a part of this elite group. Once you enter, you will never leave."

(The funny thing is that I covered up a 26.2 Boston sticker with the 140.6. How arrogant is that?! Is running freaking Boston no longer good enough for me?!? Wow...)

And my new current favorite (that will NOT make it on the car...but maybe the Vespa)

Marathon Ho..... hahahahahahahaha.
Nice one Sapp.

Viv said...

Love that you covered the Boston one, hahahaha! Love it, Caddy. I am waiting to complete a full one of something to decorate my car. 13.1's and a future 70.3 just don't seem honorable yet so I stick with the ol' USAT one

I like that marathon ho one, might have to get that for a few Xmas presents!

Dave said...

How in the world would you get to and from a tri without an Element? We love ours. :)

Meredith said...

Darn it! Dave commented before me! Our Element has a 26.2 sticker on it because technically it's mine. I bought Dave a 26.2 sticker last Christmas for his Prius and he still hasn't put it on it yet. I guess he's waiting for something better.

I carry the red, Euro M-dot on mine.

But I'm going to stage an intervention if you start wearing your marathon PR time on your bumper. That's just too showy.
