Once again, while riding my bicycle, I was caught unawares by the Chicago Triathlon and had to cut my ride severely short because the Lake Front Trail is overrun by athletes and onlookers. I ended up riding about 10 miles instead of the planned 20+. I always carry a camera so, having learned from last year, I moved to an area without barricades and with a interesting background view. This is where I saw this guy walking. I dubbed him the sad triathlete.
