Time to shave?
Shaving your legs is just a part of being a triathlete. Don't ask, just shave. It saves time. Easier to get off your wetsuit. It shows that you are a triathlete. It hurts far less if you crash. It makes you fast. It is…. Ahhhhh…..Oh no……
I did it again. I was looking from the WRONG side again. Let’s back up. I promised I would look at the world from the IronWidow point of view. (I'm doing better right?)
Ok. It’s time to tell the truth. I have heard many wives say they actually like the shaved legs. I have also heard wives say they resent the leg shaving because it makes them have to keep up. So what is it? Do you mind? Do you like it? Let's be honest. In a 15 hour Ironman, does the hair on your legs really matter? "I think if it was just the legs, we would be ok" said one wife to me. She continued to say "I just can't take the arms, chest and other areas. What the heck." So I dare to ask, what is "ok" in your mind. Legs? Arms? Chest?
Let’s hear it. Let it all off your chest!
Before you cast your vote, let me tell you the ultimate quote I heard this year. "Stu, I just don't get it, but I accept it. My husband shaves his legs, arms, chest and EVEN feet. When he took the razor to his feet, I know he had lost his mind." Her husband later came up to me and said, "Stu, the feet shaving is just a ploy to get her mind off my crazy looking Speedo!"
Ok, time to cast the vote!
