Not Doing It This Year Either 

I'd just like to come out publicly once again as my triathlon season approaches, and say that I won't be shaving my legs this year either. Among the popular search phrases that land people on my blog, "male leg shaving" and "triathlete leg shaving" or pretty high on the list. And as spring approaches, the number of hits that I get on those phrases is going up again. You can read my previous posts on the subject, along with my reasons for keeping my hairy legs, here and here.

Granted I'm definitely no yeti, but I have enough hair that I can't even imagine the time commitment required to shave them. Strange as it may sound to those who've never done a triathlon (or who aren't avid bike riders), but this is actually a common discussion topic. Not only that, but by choosing not to shave my legs, I'm actually in the minority of male triathletes.

Just to make this post a little more interesting, I'll pose this question to my female readers (and I know I have at least a few). Which is hotter on a guy? Sculpted shaved legs, or sculpted hairy legs? Not that my legs are that sculpted or chiseled mind you... but let's just pretend they are to stroke my ego a bit.
