Tri ≠ Try

You might not know it by the name of my race, but I don't like it when the abbreviation "tri" is used to mean "put forth an effort" or "attempt." It's really overdone and it's been old for a while.

My race didn't have a name first. I was calling it "Tri at the Rez" at first, which was short for "the Triathlon at the FSU Reservation." Rez Race might have been a cool name, but someone suggested that I call it Tri the Rez and I thought that the name kind of advertised what kind of event it would be. I'm not a big fan, but it works.
