Ironically, I have just ordered a new pair a cycling shorts and await its arrival at the church offices, classic 'mamil' behaviour according to the article.
And yes I do gawk at hi spec derailleur gears and carbon frames. Sadly, I still use my sister's steel framed 10 year old bike with squeeky gears but I aspire to greater things.
With only 10 days to go until the Reading Triathlon I am regretting the vast quantity of cheese I ate in France and my woeful lack of bike & run training over the past few months.
I have downgraded my pre-race language from 'racing' to 'participating' in the event ... at least I will enjoy the swim.
So I am officially a 'Mamil' but just don't ask me what my time was at Reading.
