Saturday was the USAT Mid-Atlantic meeting where we all came out to be enlightened and win the club challenge. Amazingly, both DCTri and the PA groups had more members there than the local Maryland club.
Things I learned:
1. The divorce rate among the general population is 50%, the divorce rate among serious triathletes is 75%. No word on whether being married to a fellow triathlete increases or decreases this likelihood. Although that didn't work for Peter Reid.
2. The person to ask about balancing home life and tri life, is not the twice-divorced speaker.
"Do you have a pre-nup?"
3. There are a lot of great volunteer opportunities including triathlon summer camps for at-risk kids!
4. Three hours in the saddle- no problem, three hours in a chair- torture.
