Apparently, you carry all of your stuff in your bucket (instead of a backpack) and then you lay out your transition area, turn the bucket over, and voila! You can sit on the bucket while you put on/take off your shoes! Isn't that amazing? So simple, and yet, who would have thought??
Immediately, I turned to my dear husband and said, "I need a 5 gallon bucket for the triathlon next month." He must be getting used to strange requests because he didn't even blink an eye before he told me that we have a couple of buckets in the garage that were used for baseballs. Then I remembered the one from our favorite beach, St. George Island, FL.
"Can I use the SGI bucket?"
"Um... well... sure, I guess." Someone loves their bucket! I promise to take good care of it! So I cleaned it up and bought a seat/lid for it and here it is! My Tri Bucket!
|I'm trying to decide if it needs triathlon stickers on it, which I have from Cindy. Somewhere. In the House. Somewhere. LOL|
I feel so strangely cool now.
