Male triathletes...shave those legs!!
Sunday- 3am- wake up. 3:30am- left the city to head up north for Vineman 70.3. 5am- reported for body marking duties!
Vineman 70.3 was much more fun as a spectator than a racer, IMHO! Body marking was a bunch of fun but it got chaotic as the mass of people started to arrive. Body marking can be a very artistic task. Since I don't like it when my numbers look like crap, I paid extra attention to my marking duties. Dark, distinct and legible! As a body marker, I will make a request on behalf of all future body marking volunteers- Men, shave those legs! Task at hand was much easier done on smooth calves than it was on calves with tough and coarse hair...just telling the truth! Besides, you'll not only look faster with shaved legs...you will be faster :-).
In the midst of the 1700 athletes that were in attendance, yours truly had the honor of body marking the 79 year old Sister Madonna! Yes, she was the highlight, even among the other fine young men in the house!
