    I really appreciated this! I am a newlywed and my husband recently starting his immersion into trisports this past September. Definitely experienced some uncomfortable change and disruption to our newfound love bubble, but am taking it on because I can see how good it is for his mind and self-esteem to know he can accomplish such challenging physical feats. He is venturing to do his first 1/2 Ironman in Hawaii next June – ironically which falls right before our 1 year anniversary and think I’m going to go all out for this. Matching athletic zip ups and do it right! I didn’t make the second one he did due to work conflicts so he took a friend that he trained with and did great.
    I will be reading more posts!

      Hi Taylor. Welcome. I hope you are spending some special time after the race in Hawaii. The island is gorgeous and full of tons of fun activities if you haven’t been before. We have tons of suggestions in our Kona guides as we have been many times. I even got married there! Let us know if we can answer any questions or help in any way!

    I think I am still #1 after 3 years of being a Sherpa, but I can see how moving into #2 could benefit me 😊 My first full IM race was exhausting, frustrating and full of anxiety by the end of it… I always befriend lonely Sherpas at the race for moral support and tell them about your club.

      Thank you so much! It’s much nicer to be with fellow trisupporters than standing all by yourself…

    I finally divorced my tri husband because life with him became incredibly boring. Who cares what your personal best time is? Grow up! I find triathletes vapid and self absorbed by their endless fitness rituals. The money and time that went to the pursuit of his fitness goals made me think I was living with a teenaged boy who couldn’t stop thinking about his own performance. I am so glad I divorced his ass. I hope his expensive bike and athletic apparel bring him much comfort when he is burnt out from pushing his body for years. What a waste!!!

      Ouch! I’m so sorry for the horrible experience you had. Luckily, not all triathletes are that bad. I wish you all the best in your new life, seriously…

      Luckily our kids were not quite that young when we got pulled into triathlons. You’re so right about the stage of life. We’re just getting back after a 2 year break but with my work and previous obligations now I’m missing at least 1 if not 2 of the races this year. Can’t be helped.

        I missed one race because baby was less than a month old, and two races because I was in a different continent.

          I always feel guilty for missing races because he has dnfed or done less well at races I miss. He also has difficulties falling asleep on race night when I’m not there. But I think he’s over that now so hopefully will be fine at the next race I’m missing.

            That’s actually kind of sweet that he needs you so much at races, but I hope he hasn’t blamed you! I’m laughing that you said you think he’s over that now…I guess he’s matured!

          Well, I think those are pretty darn good excuses! Just hope you didn’t get any grief…

    It is very challenging if we have a husband that is a triathlete but at the same time very proud. As a wife, I am an all out support to him.

      Me too, but it can be very trying sometimes and this year, I have to miss a few of the races due to previous obligations!
