One of the disadvantages of being on the more “chronologically achieved” side is that you use up all of the lines on your Road ID™ bracelet with actual medical info instead of having a line left for inspirational quotes.
But if I did have room, I think I would need a different bracelet for each of the three segments of triathlon. (I’ll assume for the moment that I can get through the two transitions relatively unscathed, but nothing is a given.) Since the bracelet doesn’t really do much for you until things go bad, I think these would be good instructions to leave:
- For the run: “Pause my Garmin”. I know that’s an old one but I can’t think of anything better.
- For the bike: “Is my bike OK?” It’s all about priorities, after all.
- For the swim: “Tip the recovery diver.” ‘nough said.
