Somehow signing up for the Wise Olympic Distance Triathlon fails this definition… Where exactly have I shown a “capacity for sound judgment” by committing to swim/bike/run in the middle of a blazing hot North Texas summer?
What “keen discernment” is evidenced by my haphazard training regimen?
And where was my “deep understanding” when I signed up for this race with my newborn daughter asleep in my lap?
As a friend and colleague pointed out, I’ve gotta be doing it for the t-shirt…
