Thank Goodness for Instruction Manuals

Otherwise how would I know how to put on my goggles?

I kid you not, these instructions came with my goggles, graphics and everything.

The 'Directions' range from incomprehensible to inaccurate (nose bridge is not adjustable) to 'Duh!'  Believe me, if I've got inflamed skin around my eyes I'm going to stop wearing the goggles whether you tell me to or not, no need to say 'please'.

I think it's a good rule of thumb that if you need directions about how put on goggles you probably shouldn't be in water over your head in the first place.  I'm just sayin'.

The goggles were my consolation prize for not taking my entry to the regular Xterra race at Nationals.  Lance Armstrong did end up entering so it's just as well I'm at DOCNA Champs.  Wonder if that little voice in my head that told me to choose DOCNA Champs all those months ago is psychic.  I saw some photos from the bike course though and it looks so pretty, leaves are starting to change.  I hope they have it at Snowbasin in Utah again next year but I doubt it or I think they'd have announced it already.  I suppose I should focus on this year's goal for now though. 


  1. Hahahahaha!!! That is funny :)

  2. I love stuff like this. "High temperature heat," good one. Sometimes I buy things just because of the packaging or instructions ( At least they didn't have warnings like, "Not for human consumption" or "Do not use in microwave oven." Or, well, hmm, that would've been even better, actually.
