Happy Friday everyone!  For those of you looking for a little light lunchtime internet distraction to tide you over until quitting time, here’s a few Stray Thoughts for your Friday Afternoon

A great link to the Best Triathlon Quotes of 2013.  Most of these are very Ironman-winner-specific, but this one really jumped out at me:

“It’s easy to get caught up in our little world (what?!) of triathlon, talking about the relative dorkiness of specific activities and attire choices. But I’ve got news for you guys. According to the 99.9 percent of the population outside of the sport, we’re all big ’ol dorks. The coolest triathlete out there hovers somewhere between captain of the chess club and Steve Urkel on the world scale of coolness. Don’t worry — I don’t think it’s entirely our faults. It’s the nature of our sport, being the outcasts of not one but three more popular and established sports. That’s a lot of nerds jockeying for position.” Jesse Thomas

        The great thing about being an athlete is that you don’t actually have to follow pros…you are your own pro. Jesse Thomas writes funny a monthly article in Triathlete magazine. He’s won Wildflower 3x and that race is on my bucket list.
