There are tons of things we don’t like seeing while racing. Things that gross us out, psyche us out, annoy us or just distract us.
Here are my “favorites”:
1) A sign saying “Steep hills ahead” while on the bike
2) Other athletes pull up injured with cries of anguish.
3) Your own vomit
4) Early morning fog on a lake – meaning the swim will be canceled and replaced by a run
5) Competitors wearing old, see-through tri shorts
What are the things you hate to see?
