About Me

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

Whatcha Got In There?!


Look out Wildflower Triathlon, here I come with the WORLD'S LARGEST TRI-BAG EVER!!

I mean, it's no secret that I'm of petite stature. At 5' 1," on a "tall" day, I'm never going to do a high jump, slam dunk a basketball, or even reach something on the top shelf at the grocery. Up until this point, I was o.k. with that...

But this is freaking ridiculous. Did TYR have to make a bag that is almost as tall as me?! Do we need to haul around that much crap for a one-day event?! Is it necessary to own a transition bag that I can fit into?! At least if I keel over, there's already a body bag in my transition area!

Those LA chicks and their big designer bags ain't got nuthin' on me!!

I'm afraid to see it when I actually fill it with race gear! Anyone want to be my sherpa?
Imagine the goodies we can put in this bag!

HAHAHAHA. I can't stop laughing. That's hysterical.

If you're anything like me, the bigger the bag/purse, the more stuff I manage to carry!

Hysterical is definitely the word. :)

Have a great time at Wildflower! Race hard then relax.

I think that they made it that big so you can mail youself, along with your bike, to far-away-distance events...

Dave said...

Hehe! That's the same exact bag Meredith and I use! She's now wondering if it looks that big on her.

CoachLiz said...

Holy crap! You found a bag bigger than mine!

I am laughing and trying not to. We are such pack rats.

Let me know if those rumors of the naked co-eds at one of the run aid stations is true or not. Have a great journey.

HA, I've got a TYR bag just like that but a different color. When I fill it up, I swear wearing that thing is like carrying another person on my back!

Priscilla said...

That's awesome!

oh my gosh. I can't stop laughing. that is funny....really funny. it's funny that you fit the requirements for carry on luggage but that bag doesn't.

OK, so this may be totally inappropriate, but
Huge Bag + Engine 2 Diet=tiny looking butt

With all due respect. I'm just sayin'
