Did anyone see this article in the Wall Street Journal from Tuesday?

Link didn't work for me. Is this the article:

http://blogs.wsj.com/juggle/2011/01/31/the-plight-of-the-training-widow/

If so, all of the concerns discussed in this article are valid and that we need to take our families/spouses/friends etc into consideration. Should you sign up for an Ironman before passing it by your other half? Probably not.

But that said, I dont think it is anything unique to Triathlon. What about the avid Football fan that spends all day Saturday and Sunday watching games on TV? My sister is extremely involved in her Church. She hasn't come to family events because she has a meeting at Church. So are there triathlon widows? Probably. Just as there are Football Widows, Church Widows, Scrapbook Widows,.....

My 2 cents.

Try this:

Not necessarily unique, but funny. :)
