Seen in Houston:

80 Degrees and 80% humidity before sunrise. Aaaaaack.

From afar--someone on a mountain bike or townie that I swear was wearing an aero helmet. (OK, that might have been some kind of Freudian hallucination, but I that's what it looked like.)

In the locker room--man drying body hair--yes, including THAT body hair--with blow dryer.

I.KID.YOU.NOT.

These are experience that Bolder never has to undergo in Triathlon Mecca on the front range.

Take my home town . . . . please.

Yikes. 80/80. Well, what doesn't kill you . . .

You are so gonna kick that Canadian Iron Gawdess's ass. She'll melt like the Wicked Witch of the North (only cuter)

You know, I SO don't miss the 98/98 that we would see regularly in summer in Tampa. Heck, 40% humidity here in Denver feels positively muggy.

Time for everyone to come back to Califorina. Up here in the Bay Area it is very temperate and perfect traininig/racing weather and in San Diego my daughter is 'freezing to death' which means it is probably 50.

There's a sign at my friend's gym that says to only use the dryers to dry the hair on your head. So I guess there is an epidemic of people using them to dry private hair and not just public hair.

Somebody ought to tell locker room guy the hair drier story Penn Jillette tells. You can just imagine I am sure...

gross.

as for the humidity.. it hasn't started here yet, but when it does, it'll give houston a run for its money. thankfully though... i'm a bit further north. so i have about a month before it gets REALLY bad!! :p

Andra Sue said...

Seen in Dallas: person riding a mountain bike with aerobars. Yikes.

Nothing tops your lockeroom visual, though. Eeeew. :P

GeekGirl said...

roflmao! That is TOO bizarre.
Now, re. weather, I'll see your 80 degrees and raise you 40-mile per hour gusts...

Lance Notstrong said...

Holy crap!!! I've seen some nasty shit in the locker room but never blow drying of the nether regions. That takes the cake!!!

Bigun said...

"so, Bill, how was that chest workout today..."

"Great Tom, I thought I'd...cough, chough, spit, spit - what is that?"

whirrrrrrrrr (sound a hairdrier makes...)

the Dread Pirate Rackham said...

yeah, I've heard about boys in their locker rooms - drying their back hair and whatnot.

Good thing you have your own locker room, that's all I'm sayin'.
