Something cute about triathlon..

I found this on some guy's blog and thought it was cute:

Ironman Life's 8 Tips On How To Be A Triathlete And Impress Your Friends Without Actually Doing An Ounce Of Exercise

1. Shave your legs. Chicks dig it.
2. Lycra. Buy it.
3. Get into the pool before 6:00 am at least once. Brag about it forever.
4. Re-mortgage your house - buy a bike. Mention words like "campy" and "downtube"
5. Go to the running store, buy the most expensive shoes available. Refer to their "superior technology"
6. Buy Triathlete Magazine. Leave it on your coffee table. When people ask about it, start your response with "Oh that? It's nothing..."
7. Choose a race. In every conversation, figure out how to talk about the intense training you're doing for it (don't worry, no need to actually do the race.)
8. End the last conversation of every day with "I've got to get to sleep. Early training day tomorrow."

Can you add any?

Oh, I've done everything but number 4. That sounds pretty bad huh? Well at least I have actually done a few races!

9). Leave a cassett tool, a chain cleaning kit and a bottle of lube out on the kitchen table. When someone asks about it just say "oh - I was just cleaning up the bike for a long ride"
