jonnyo speaks

So I was chatting with Paulo yesterday and he says, "jonnyo and I were talking... and we decided you should quit your job and train full time."

My response, "Easy for jonnyo to say..."

As exciting as that would be, I (unfortunately) have a few minor expenses, most notably rent and food, which would be a bit difficult to cover on just triathlon earnings. Unfortunately jonnyo, not all of us are hot-shot 8:3x professional triathletes who have finished 2nd in an IM... So until that happens, I wont be quitting my day job.

Quit your job and maybe you'll start winning? Or, become an airline pilot, work just a few days a week and train the rest of the time :)

So did you ask Paulo when your room at the PStriathlon palace will be ready?

Andrew said...

Dont worry, jonnyo, I dont like to run longer than 1h40 or ride longer than 4h...

Jodi: Palace? While regretably I have not made it out to the LCHPTC, I have heard it called many things, none of which invoked images of a palace...
