You're happy for the big number birthdays because it puts you in the next age group.

You have a whole section of the basement dedicated to holding your tri stuff.

When you're sitting at a stoplight and you briefly consider getting out and running around the car because it's such a waste of time just sitting there.

If a written advertisement says "Tri state, or Tri city area" you get disappointed after you read the whole thing because it's not about triathlon at all.

In the winter, your car smells like chlorine, and in the summer it smells like the local lake.

When you get excited that you finally were able to urinate on yourself while running.

When you can coordinate a business professional work outfit to wear your compression socks without anyone knowing.

More biking related.... In my area we have several lights that are sensor driven so without cars waiting at the light with me, a cyclist could just stand and stand waiting for the light to eventually turn green (long way of saying I have a few intersections where I track stand for a few seconds until it's clear then I roll through)...

So a few times in my tired haze while I was driving my car, for a split second while waiting at the light I started to think "it's clear, head on through" before realizing that won't work well in a car...

Just yesterday I tried to explain to my husband and sister why it was OK to pee before and during the swim. I'm pretty sure they now think I'm even crazier. (I didn't even bring up peeing on the bike!)

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.
