Help Me Pick!

Friday, June 13, 2008

I just received my race outfits for Ironman Coeur d’Alene.  Please help me pick the perfect SPLISH bottoms to go with one of my Saucony tops. 

Thanks to the generous folks at SPLISH for setting me up with some winning designs.
Yes, I stole this blog idea from Amanda.

The poison bottom goes best with the red Saucony top.

Are you seriously going to race in a speedo?


Good luck at CdA

I feel….weird…even commenting…even that I looked. The “poison” ones are the…um….manliest of the bunch. TriSherpaDi (my wife) likes the party in my pants one…even though it does not match.

Definitely “poison” bottoms

I like poison and party in my pants (even though it doesn’t match). Poison with red top I think is the winner!!!

I like the Poison bottoms but the Party in my pants really made me laugh.

dood! i dig the stripes. it’s very reminiscent of apollo’s boxing trunks in rocky 1 & 2.

You can’t beat a good pirate booty! Argggh! It could even become a race mantra for the people you pass. Because that’s what they’ll be thinking. See you at IMCDA!

I say the candy striped ones. Perhaps you can also borrow the matching pants from University of Indiana basketball team!

your mother and sister will be walking 20 paces behind you at all times. But we still love you.

I’d have to say the “poison” ones. I’ll be cheering you on in CDA!! Looking forward to seeing you win in those “Poison” pants! ;)

Poison matches, but party in my pants will get a bigger “rise” out of your fans!!! ;)

I am with bigun though…I feel like I need to wash my hands (or eyes….)!

Have you been practicing your German because it’s one thing to have the body to pull this off but if you cannot fake the accent…

Bonne chance at CDA, we’ll be looking for updates from Nice!
