I’m back!  I know you all were anxiously awaiting my return, wandering blindly through life the last few weeks, directionless without a random triathlete to offer guidance....

    @ellsworth53t take that one whichever way makes you feel the least icky. Good luck with that.

    In all seriousness, (I know I know this is not the place) I think if they added a non-timed, swim with floated, ride what you have and walk the rest category the sport would gain participants instead of losing them. I am not advocating for that but I will bet it would work. This sport needs to do something or local races will be gone.

    Coming to a Canadian venue near you in 2017 - Crown Royal® Presents - Triathlon, Neat™!

    Start your day with a smooth, generous finger of Crown Royal® Regal Apple™ and a Trudeau®-brand gagger of Ottawa Express™, as you await your Seadoo® Seascooter™-assisted tour of the iceberg caverns of Newfoundland.

    Tossing your drysuit aside in T1, warm your bones as you inhale the invigorating, rugged flavour of a Benson & Hedges® White™ and savour 30mL of Crown Royal® Maple Finished™.

    Not feeling sporty? No problem - you can "Be A Motordoper For A Day"™, and relax as you take in the spectacular plateaus and fjords of Gros Morne National Park™ aboard a fully-automated Cervelo® P7™ [sworry Americans, we've had the P7 for like a year and a half already and just aren't supposed to tell you].

    Hack one more dart, couple draws'a th'Express, and down a couple dozen millilitres of Crown Royal® Whiskey™ in T2, and your greatest (and only) challenge of the day has arrived: convincing the Mounties you're OK as you walk 50m down the road to the finish line. Receive your Roots® finisher's toque, cool down with another quick puffa Trudeau, and get ready for "T3": all the Crown Royal® Black™ you can drink, Bublé in the background, and ax-tossing till the moose come home.

    Note: this is a BYOP* event. Curd responsibly.

    @G Scott Layher Cycling used to have Merckx divisions, so no fancy equipment. Though cycling also has ability-based categories instead of age-based, so, and only separates out Masters divisions (and juniors). I think some of the Tri Retro series are more ride what you have.

    A triathlon, but with swimmies, single-speed bikes and roller blade legal runs.
