Don't Stand Behind Me...

...I'll poke an eye out!

My Wingspan came just in time for Winter Storm Saturn.  By Friday morning we had a foot of snow and today it's going to be 50.  What an undecided weather pattern!

I guess it's time to start training for Rev3 Quassy and Ironman Lake Placid!  *Sigh*  


1.  What new item(s) are you sporting at this year's races?
I've got my Rudy Wingspan and am working on a new tri kit (more on that later).

2.  Do you wear an aero helmet?  If so, which one?  If not, why not?
Will this really help my time?, doubtful.  But everyone swears it cuts 10 minutes off your Ironman. 

3.  What are you up to this weekend?
My mother is coming for a visit this weekend. 

Dream.  Believe.  Achieve.

I finally got a triathlon bike to replace my road bike from when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. So that's my big new item. Not at the aero helmet level yet. (I still to sprints and olympic).

Good luck on your training

Looking forward to rocking Mooloolaba in my new Mizunos next week. This weekend is my husbands birthday, so sticking close to home.

Over here aero helmets are known as wanker helmets or sperm helmets. I understand their use for Ironman distances, as long as you're maintaining an aero profile too. Unfortunately we have many people over here wearing them to fun, short distance or even sprint events. Makes no sense

I don't wear an aero helmet I figure I'm not fast enough for it to make a difference and they look like they'd be hot. Maybe one day I'll be fast enough to justify it...

I have a Rudy helmet. Mine's just a regular one though, not Aero. I do love it. I'm not sure an aero helmet is gonna make all that much difference for me though. Especially on a hilly course. I must say though, they're cool looking.

I'm looking for a new tri outfit. I have a 2XU right now and I hate it. I need something that's thinner, not so heavy. Any ideas? I've hear Peal Izumi makes a nice one.
