Explaining triathlon.

The fun world if reactions when others learn you do triathlon.

If you are a triathlete of any distance you have no doubt seen and heard many different reactions. Many think it’s that race in Hawaii. Many think there is only one distance. Many don’t even know there are three sports or what they are. But you don’t want to be offensive and explain it every time. At least that’s how I feel. So I say I do triathlon. Or did or am doing an ironman. Then I wait for a response. I usually enjoy it but often leave it at that.

How do you navigate the waters if our weird, somewhat obscure sport?
