Then we move on to tan lines. I've grown up with a good swim suit tan line on my back for years, but this year I have very little swim suit tan, and a hard shorts line. Does that tell you where I've been spending most my time? Yup, on the bike. I try to even it out running and at the pool, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Pretty sure it got its start at IMSG where I neglected any sunscreen for my legs. But don't let that fool you, I'm normally very diligent about sunscreen - no skin cancer for this girl please!
You like the neapolitan look I'm sporting? The camera lighting is weird for some reason so my skin looks horrible, but notice the 3 levels of tan I have, and the road/trail rash on my calf. Oh yeah..... :)And speaking of IMSG, it's hard to see in this pic below, but I had a vertical 27 sunburned into my left calf for at least a month post race. It was awesome! What wasn't awesome were the painful sunburns on the small of my back from the place where my jersey and shorts don't match up. Serves me right, the only time that happens is when I wear my little shorts to get a good tan, not my PowerTri shorts. Oucho.
