The other day I was so tired I forgot to pay for daily parking. Literally just forgot. And it’s not like it’s secret that you have to pay a day fee for parking. I walked out of the lot and didn’t think about it again until I got back. Which made me think the $45 ticket is part of the cost of triathlon, since I was just so wrecked my brain was fried.
What else would count as part of the cost of triathlon? (Besides all the clothes + shoes + equipment + travel + races + hotels + doctor’s appointments + gym memberships. Ugh.)
- Lots of pairs of headphones — now that I’m running on the treadmill 1-2x/wk I am frying headphones at an alarming rate
- Which means you can also add the long-term effects to my hearing to the list of eventual triathlon costs, because you have to turn up the sound really high on the treadmill
- Food, so much food, all the food, and since I’m too tired to make food I have to keep buying it already prepared
- Lost income from the work I don’t do because I fall asleep on the floor
- The super amazing magazine/producer/angrier-version-of-Oprah job I don’t have, obviously, because of triathlon
- Healthy relationships. Hah.
