Do you ever have times when you think you're really in the dark about things? Like there is something everyone else knows but you?
Examples might be (but not limited to): No one told you to not blow dry your hair while taking a bath. No one told you to not wear a maxi pad with a thong bathing suit (unless they are these of course). No one told you to always check to make sure a treadmill is off before getting on it.
What I learned is this: cyclists should wax their hair (yes, down there) to lessen friction and to make the ride more comfortable. When I say shave, I mean SHAVE. As in Elmer Fudd, Phil McGraw and George Foreman. Bald. Bald bald bald as a ping pong ball. The person of interest was a female, so not sure if this applies to men or not.
Before becoming a runner I was a cyclist, putting in some big miles per week. Doing centuries and multi day rides. I never knew this little secret about hair and friction. Hey, you experienced riders - is there something to this?
I’m planning on some tris this year and want to maximize the experience. Wonder if I should go all Elmer Fudd.
