If an injury caused my bum to show, and it was insurmountable, I would quit.

If a wardrobe malfunction caused it, I would continue.  I am not embarrassed about my body or anyone else's.

Full disclosure.  My suit ripped once on a practice swim.  Suits fail.

1. Awesome!

2. Way to pre-comeback the inevitable "pics or it didn't happen"

3. Except the link doesn't work. At least you know I tried ... should I not have admitted to this? Hey, I'm not ashamed of my butt or your butt, either!

There is no Tri - 2012-04-15 5:53 AM

This poll needs a "Get some butt sparkle" option.

It's at the end, titled "Add your own option"

Yeah, but this suggestion is for butt "SPARKLE."  Maybe a typo?

Add a more crass word for donkey or tucas after the last dash and it'll work, filter dropped three letters. No butt pics, just the suit that failed.

Right, so in the last option, type in what you want with the spelling you want and check that box. It'll show up as soon as you do.

OMG!  Reviewing the posts has made me think that I better have my husband check out my tri shorts for "transparency"  I wear them once a week to a spin class, and the back row is always taken when I get there.  I never even had an idea that someone on a bike behind me might be able to see through my tri shorts!

tricrazy - 2012-04-14 2:40 PM I am fairly conservative and modest about my body.  If my shorts had split and the world could see, I wouldn't be able to keep going.  I don't think that means I am looking for an excuse to quit, just that I am not comfortable showing the world what I look like naked.

Amen. I'm still not entirely comfortable showing the world what I look like in spandex.

But I agree. That guy is totally hot. Some people wear partial nudity better than the rest of us.

I would keep going, it's not like the gear we wear leaves anything to the imagination anyways.  Been naked in front of friends, and total strangers, it's just a human body, and no different then looking at a beautiful painting, statue, car or any other thing you might like to admire normally.  People that get worked up about it, really ought to get over it, just my opinion.

I bet half the people on here who voted "Finish the race. No worries about indecent exposure" would do exactly the opposite. It's easy to sit behind a keyboard & say "oh I'd HTFU & do xyz" but until you're actually out there & your butt is in the fire there is no way to know how you'd react.

Happens to the best

I would take that bet.

If my pants ripped at work it would probably be different, but even in that environment I've had some semi embarassing things happen that I simply couldn't take time to deal with right away.

At a tri?  Who cares.

Most of us are of age and have been for some time.  We wear spandex, we have seen members of both sexes naked at somepoint, and been seen as well, and we refer to eachother as "pace booty".  Oh and one of our time honored traditions is a underwear run a few days before our signature race.

Frankly, the older you are the less you give a rats exposed "donkey" about what people see of you.

Or, in my case, a bizarre peace of modern art that makes you say "WTF?" or a bad wreck, you don't REALLY want to see the carnage but can't look away.

Naw, I'm for real. I would finish the race with my butt hanging out. I would finish the race with the "girls" hanging out. I would finish the race naked* if it came down to it. Full disclosure (heh heh): I have been to nudist resorts and played all sorts of unattractive sports (petanque, anyone?) while naked. It's quite freeing, actually. I love my tri suit because I feel almost naked but less jiggly.

*This was attempted once that I know of, but not successfully: http://www.fox19.com/story/14550871/naked-runner-in-flying-pig-mara...
