If you have been in the sport long enough, you would have realized that all tri-suits are sleeveless.
Why is that so!? Perhaps, to reduce drag in the open water swim? Maybe, it is more aero-dynamic on the bike? Or it could it be that by the time most of us get round to running, the mid-day sun is burning down our back and we need a-COOLING-SLEEVELESS top to dissipate the heat.
Rationales aside. The question is - will you look good or will you look like an unruly chimpanzee as you cross that finishing line? Lifting your hands in the air and waving to the crowd, hoping for an awesome finisher picture?Ladies never look glam with bushes tugged under their arms.
Guys don't need think you can escape from this. At least, keep your underarm hairs neat. You never know which lady is secretly admiring you in your tight fitting tri-suit. Until the moment you lift your hands!
We think it is A-OK for guys to shave your underarm hairs. Especially in this hot and humid weather. Moreover, you may gain that precious few seconds as being clean shaven will reduce drag.
We enjoy blogging all things triathlon-related. Nothing embarrassing about the shaving topic.
Now, where's that shaving cream?
