Over the weekend I spoke to a few people I was competing against at the Southport Triathlon, mainly those who finish with me at the tail end of the race while we waited in line to get our official times at the end of the day. One of the Guys I was chatting to described himself as a "Bracketeer". I was a little puzzled and he explained, it someone who has accepted that They will struggle through, barely getting past each discipline before the cut-off or before the broom wagon collects them.
I'll admit I've never heard of a 'Bracketeer' - is it a thing? is anyone else a self confessed Bracketeer?
I'll admit, It would describe my approach if I ever do a full Ironman!
