i think i'm addicted

i'm getting a bit worried about my state of mind when it comes to triathlon. I've recently named my bike and was at one point thinking of buying it a dog collar with it on. I've also started to daydream about pieces of kit i want more and more, and sometimes i'll just sigh and say orca which everyone around me seems to think is pretty wierd. Am i the only one doing this, i hope not.....

    Hey mike,

    maybe you should read this thread: http://forum.220magazine.com/fb.asp?m=11609&key=

    Perhaps you'll recognise a lot of yourself in it.

    And remember; the first step is admitting you're an addict.

    You probably suffer from a serious 'adictus triatletis tremendum'.[:D]

    Theres a fine line between hobby and mental illness!

    But, as I've always said - there's no point having a line if you don't explore whats on the other side every now and again!

    I have named my bike - "Betty", a Giant SCR2. Even talk to the old girl on some of the hills to help her on the climbs.
