    Not to pick a fight, but

    Not to pick a fight, but seeing a bunch of triathletes running barefoot while pushing their bikes for five minutes just to get to the mount line would be kind of funny. Your choice is run barefoot with your shoes clipped in to the bike or clip-clop along in cycling shoes, trying not to think about how badly you're ruining them by running and quietly cursing the race director.

    There, I've now sucked all the fun out of this post. My work here is done.
