post #32686 of 43625
A acquaintance of mine (wives are friends) is running the Coeur d'Alene Ironman tomorrow in Idaho...his first Ironman, and he is a bit of a bigger guy so it's borderline whether he's going to do it in the mandated 17 hours. I'm not a huge fan of the guy.

If he makes it, I will have more respect for him and will have something to talk to him about next time we see each other. If he times out or quits, even better. tounge.gif Either way I win.

rankings in annoying-ness in regards to runners/bikers

5. ultra marathon guy (these guys are surprisingly normal looking i have a cousin who looks doughy and he's run double ultras - he doesnt even really talk about it).
4. marathon guy (inversely proportional in annoying-ness to number of 26.2 stickers on car).
3. half marathon guy (Include me into this. uhoh.gif guy who runs half marathons and likes to weave it into conversations about the weekend at work). exponentially inversely proportional to amount of 13.1 stickers on car.
2. triathlete guy - oh gawd please no more facebook updates about your swim/bike/run today. please gawd no more. inversely proportunal to the amount of money spend on triathlon specific bike and wetsuit.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
1. 5k walk woman. wears t-shirt proudly and brags about being sore, feels real kinship to the ultra marathon guy when discussing their "races" over the weekend.

Of the list above, I think the 13.1 people are the most annoying. They have the most disproportionate pride to actual athletic achievement ratio of all the groups

How about the bodybuilders? I don't mind so much the zero body fat preeners or the crossfit warriors, but what I really hate are the big meatheads who walk into the mall in their size S wifebeaters and start shouldering people aside with their oversized upper bodies. They are hilarious though because every one of them looks like a teeter totter with those underdeveloped legs and beer gut to go with those awesome pecs lol8[1].gif

Just copped a ticket for ZZ Top's concert in Berlin for 40 € (including shipment) on ebay. They were originally sold for 55 €. My mom wanted to get one too for their concert in Hamburg and people are paying 90 € + for one ticket. So yeah, I guess I can be pretty happy with the 40 € I've paid.

Had a boozy lunch with the wife. Went to neighborhood BYOB place, brought couple bottles of rose, sat outside, and had a great time.
