As others have pointed out, if married couple Pete and Chasten had gotten caught doing what Lauren Boobfart did in a crowded theatre we never would hear the end of it. That alone is a reason why this is relevant. So as R5 says, let's celebrate that he can make a commitment to years of training and finish the event in the top quarter percentile

OMG I never thought of that but you are absolutely right. It would be the lead story on Fox News and Pete would be vilified as morally degenerate and unfit for office and etc. etc.

It would be REALLY ugly, a total shitstorm.

Really puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

I want to admire this, but I don’t see how someone with young twins and a job can have the time. Unless one of the other things isn’t getting enough attention. Training in three different activities is time consuming, more so than running a marathon or playing golf.

This is an activity you pursue when you’ve been in the same job for a while and you make a decision that one year you will put your career just a little bit on the back burner so you can also do this. This isn’t what you do when you are secretary of transportation.

Someone suggested that if Buttigieg and his spouse had been kicked out of a theater for pawing each other and other inappropriate behaviors the reaction would’ve been even greater. I agree. But I also think that if a female Secretary of transportation took maternity leave and then started doing triathlons she’d be raked over the coals.

It’s isn’t that big of a deal. I just don’t think it’s a good look.

by Anonymousreply 21September 18, 2023 1:53 AM

Thanks r21. That’s what I feel as well. I wanted Pete as VP in 2020. But now I get vibes like being Secretary of Transportation is too boring for him. He seems almost flaky like another Beto type.

My sacrifices make it possible for Peter to do these things!

My Peter is always off on his Infrastructure Fact Finding trips with that tramp assistant t Trace. I am essentially a single mother! I have tits to my knees from breastfeeding those brats!

I have to endure the snickering of the other bitch cabinet wives and the First Lady. “Oh Chasten! You’re a stay at home mom! And that’s worthy, too! If you l’ll excuse me, I have to go grade papers. I don’t just sit around as First Lady; I am a PROFESSOR.”

Well Fuck You, Doctor Jill Biden! You’re as bad as Mother Buttigieg!

And does my cheap husband show me any gratitude! NO! I still don’t have that goddamn minivan! Although Peter found thousands of dollars to pay for that private personal trainer, Cesar!

And where is my husband tonight?? He says he’s preparing for an early meeting at the office tomorrow, but I think he’s really stuffing dollar bills down some male stripper’s thong at a gay bar!

I am going to drink another bottle of Whispering Angel and call it a night!

[quote] Work couldn’t wait either. My leave had already been winding down, and now I was tending to issues that couldn’t wait or be delegated. Sometimes, that meant taking a deep breath while looking down at my unconscious two-month-old son, on life support but still strong enough to reflexively keep his grip on my finger, and then realizing I had two minutes to get into a Zoom meeting with transportation stakeholders, a phone call with a Senator, or a TV interview. I would gently unpeel his tiny fingers from around mine and turn away from the bed. I’d put a tie on, go to a nearby room (or in one rushed case, the bathroom), open the laptop, pick a virtual background so no one would be distracted by seeing that I was taking the meeting from a hospital, and get to work.

A triathlon in a suite would still better than any of Marge's nonsense

[quote] viewers were alarmed by her pull-ups—a swingy variation that can look bizarre to outsiders. Where a normal pull-up involves engaging your arms, back, and core to pull yourself up and over the bar, Greene was arching her back before swinging her body upward into a somewhat hollow position.

[quote] But Greene is a devotee of the CrossFit method, in spite of the brand disavowing her due to her penchant for racism and conspiracy theories. She clarified later that she was doing “butterfly pull-ups.” (Though, it seems, there’s no reason to do this unless you’re competitive in CrossFit.)

First of all, Pete is former military, not a 50 something couch potato. Guys like that have trained like that and see it as a normal part of keeping in good shape or good health. Secondly, are you saying everyone with two young kids should NEVER make the time to exercise? There seems to be no shortage of workout mom's all over the internet showing how they lost 30lbs after giving birth. Everyone celebrates them for that, but a gay man, how dare he! Must be shallow, must be for attention. Or maybe YOU have a touch of internalized homophobia lurking in your background.

R26 and R49 are right, nobody what is already reasonably fit would need to train for this - a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride, and a 13.1-mile run is moderately impressive for the average couch potato type, but Buttgieg has a history of physical fitness and would be used to doing something this at short notice or none at all.

I swim 2 km a day which is just over 1.2 miles, and cycle fairly long distances fairly regularly, 60-70 km in a day at least once every week or so, so 56 miles which is about 90 km wouldnt be a stretch by any means, I've done rides longer than that (110-120 km) Only the 13.1 mile run would be a big effort for me although I could do it. He's younger than me and used to doing triathlons so I doubt he needed too do anything much over whatever exercise he normally does every day anyway.

[quote]Doing a triathlon is as common and normal as hosting a gangbang.

I know a LOT more people that do or have done triathlons than hosted gangbangs! And I like gangbangs too. Triathlons are more common than gangbangs more's the pity. A combo of the two would be hot!

[quote] Buttigieg has called Washington “a great city for running and biking, even swimming.” But it is the triathlon that has been a long time bucket list item for the Transportation secretary. He had originally hoped to complete one to mark his 40th birthday last year. But then came the arrival of his adopted twins, which tends to disrupt any plans to compete in high-endurance sports.

[quote] Secondly, are you saying everyone with two young kids should NEVER make the time to exercise?

No. In fact, I imply that even training for a marathon isn’t too time consuming for a parent of young kids with a f/t job.

So I don’t know wtf you are talking about, R49.

Training for three different events is time consuming. There is some travel, prep, and cleaning up afree involved in every training session.

Someone running a half marathon credibly is going to need to run at least 20 miles a week, and that’s a really low estimate. With the associated prep, showering, and any travel to a park or trail that is conservatively going to take four hours.

He probably swam 3x / week and all-in that’s going to be at least six hours.

Then let’s say he does one long 30-40 miles bike ride on a weekend and 60 minute spin classes 2x/week. And let’s even say he uses a peloton at home so almost no transition time. That’s still at least five hours all-in.

That’s 15 hours a week and really, it’s a low estimate. Enough for a guy who is already in shape not to embarrass himself. But that’s still equivalent to two full work days of golf. Or running 75 miles a week. That is a lot of time.
