What’s up with that turtle?

You’ll notice throughout the site a lot of my pictures will have this cute fella in it:


I painted him in Mexico after a few too many Coronas and then named him Seymour. The fine artist at the resort added all those nice details to it because when I was “finished” it looked like a drunk tourist with a paint set decorated it.

Anyhoo, I’m putting him in pictures of my gear so you can trust that I actually own the stuff I recommend. I’m not just another blogger only worried about affiliate income orĀ in bed with companies whose gear I don’t even use. I’m trying to break down that culture.

So if you see ole Seymour then that’s 100% something the Cheap Athlete (or his wife, in laws, or Sebastian his training buddy) owns.

Happy reading.
