New Equipment for Hawaii

Saturday, October 7, 2006

As long as I’m posting photos, I thought that I’d show you all a couple of fun pieces of equipment I’ll be using in Hawaii. First, the kind folks at Saucony have created a custom pair of shoes for me. These are a standard pair of their triathlon-specific shoe, the Type A, but with a couple new grahpics. Thanks to Saucony for making me feel very special out there… it’s gotta be the shoes!

And next up is my Rudy Project aero helmet. It’s a standard Syton Open helmet, but jazzed up a bit courtesy of Fitz Graphix, a local auto body detail shop. It’s scary, so beware!

That’s it for now. I’ve got to get to sleep, as tomorrow is the final short brick workout here in Boulder before we head off to the Big Island.

Thanks for checking in on me.

Oh, and for those who are interested in seeing a bit of triathlon on TV, I’m attaching the OLN schedule for Ironman North America events. Tomorrow just happen to be IM Arizona, so I definitely recommend tuning in!

So, you’re “my” triathlete because you were at one of my races this year . . . only way way out in front of my. It was like being on the same course with Superman.

Have a great race at Kona!!
