DNG #10: A dirty sport

There’s a whole lot of nonsense that goes on in triathlon, especially in the swim leg. May or may not be deliberate, but you might find yourself being pulled back, elbowed, punched or worse while trying to move forward. Sometimes it can be quite overwhelming.

Might not be so obvious here, but the water is murky grey/brown

And it stinks to the high heavens too. Tri suits soaked in sweat that dry out can smell really, really bad. I feel bad to have to go near “clean” people after a race or training session. 😦
