Oh how the quality of discussion has improved in 10 years...
[looks at my posts...]
Hows it feel to have been running this place for a decade?
There are lots of articles online that say that this is a completely commonplace sad reality in the world of competitive bodybuilding. According to what I read, nobody really talks about it openly but it's essentially understood that even most top tier pro athletes / competitors have engaged in this type of activity at one point or another in order to make ends meet because of the high cost of training / supps / travel & living expenses. Back in the day, closeted gays would pay for "private wrestling lessons". Today, weirdos pay to "wrestle" their favourite bodybuilders and fitness models.
Necromancy: Level 99!
I read somewhere that median income for Kona triathletes is somewhere just below $200k/yr.
Seriously how else can you even afford to race, much less train and buy all that gear? The entry is almost $1000, the better bikes start around $3000 and sky is the limit there.
So the independently wealthy ones who never work i can understand.
I know one athlete that works full time in a hospital, has three HS aged kids and still finds time to train TWICE a day.
How does THAT work?
