Baton Rouge Beach Half - pre race

Taken from Steve in a Speedo taken from The Oatmeal. 

This is the locker room at the Payne Center.  If there is something for an older guy to prop their leg on they will find it!  A few actually bring a step ladder for occasions where no bench is available.  On a side note, I went to a nice gym in Sydney and they had a sign that the blow dryer was to be used ONLY for hair on your head.  Severe penalties including dismissal from the gym would apply if the blow dryer was used on other hairy areas.  You know that there had to have been an incident.

I am racing the Baton Rouge Beach (there is a lake) Half Marathon this weekend with some friends.  I raced this last year with a self inflicted injury (too much pre race festivities) - last year's race report.

I have done no speed work but I hope that a month of running hills in Sydney will pay off with another PR!

HAHAHA that is hilarious. In all honesty that is every gym I have ever gone to.

Good luck this weekend, I hope your time in Australia paid off for you! Don't race 10 miles with a 5k on the end either.

Only in a men's locker room! I used to work at a St. Anthony's Wellness Center (think St. Anthony's Triathlon) and I used to hear the horror stories of the hair dryer. Thank God I never have to witness such ickyness. Have a great race at the half mary you are doing.

Love the picture! Me and some of my dive buddies joke about that all the time. The random old guys that come up and talk to us after we swim while they sstand drinking their powerade butt nekkid!

OMG, that is totally hilarious. Although if I tell you when I was part of a swim squad there was never any embarrassment at all over nudity - maybe we were like the old guys change room :)
