There are several challenges for non-triathletes who are dating triathletes…
The first challenge is buying the right gift. Typical Valentines gifts include:
Then, of course, there are the activities. You’re thinking you might need some lube to get your pulse racing, whereas we want a HRM (or some body glide)!
