What will it take, Flatman?

Flatman is one of the "old-timer" bloggers whom we've been in contact with for some time now. He's a popular guy. He lost his blog and then found it again. He always has a few moments for a kind word or to needle his fellow bloggers. He gets lots of comments on his blog even when he posts photos of his ridiculous miniscule dog wearing clothes.

He spent the summer weight training and he's now bulging with muscle to show for his efforts.

After all this time, though, a question comes to mind: When are you going to RACE, Flatman? On foot, on the bike, in the water, wherever. Makes no difference to us.

You've got that great Teddy Roosevelt quote in your sidebar. When are we going to have the fun of seeing you "actually in the arena; [with your] face . . . marred by dust and sweat and blood"??

I'm just wonderin'. . . .

Do we have to start a public campaign or something?

hey, you mean that he's bulging with muscles and all we get to see are pics of the dog. Flatman.. I am hurt.

5k baby... pick a 5k. It's easy, it's short it's pretty painless with all the training you've got in. Throw us a bone...

I was just thinking this very same thing when I read his post today...

I think he's just scared of starting guns... Is that it Flatman? Or are you just plain scared ;)

Hear! Hear! How can someone so ingrained in the Tri Alliance not ever done a single race?

That is just wrong.

Time to step up to the plate, Flatman.
