Attitude Adjustment

I got to go to the gym today, which was GLORIOUS. I love love off season strength training.

While I was there, I was talking to a woman who is a runner, thinking about doing her first triathlon.

She asks me, "Are you fast? How fast do you go?"  

"Are you fast?" I think to myself, "Fast? Compared to who? Compared to the pro's? Fast compared to the coach potato streaming season 3 of Mad Men from netflix?"

I chewed on this question a moment, wondering how do I respond? 

%&*# this! I'm not playing this *slow* game anymore. Any and every triathlete will answer that question with...."I'm a slow runner or I'm a slow cyclist".

I'm putting a stop to it.

"Yea. I'm fast." I said, "I go really fast."
