STUFF I USE
These are some of the great products that I use every day. Not paid or sponsored, just the things or services I use in training and racing.
Last year I made the decision to upgrade my first (second hand) triathlon bike and took the plunge with Dimond. If my accent wasn’t enough to turn a
few heads in the UK my custom Virginia Tech painted Dimond will. #letthemchaseyou
For as long as I’ve been involved with triathlons the races have been a great excuse to travel. Whether close to home or around the world my bikes have always
Living in cities like London and Boston training can be tough especially with the tough winters and city traffic. With all my training for the bike is done indoors (I’ve ridden outside five times in the last year, including my three races) my Stages Powermeter, Trainerroad and my CycleOps Trainer have been amazing tools for setting my workouts and keeping me in check during the long Saturday rides.
One of the first substantial purchases I ever made was a Garmin 910xt. Years (and an added Garmin 500) later the watch has been a bombproof companion capturing all my workouts data no matter how awful it might have felt (or actually been).
My race shoe of choice for the past couple of seasons has been the GoMeb. If anyone had ever told me I’d be racing in a pair of Skechers when I was in High School I wouldn’t have been able to keep a straight face. Looking forward to putting these baby’s to good use when I race Boston this spring!!
With all the time spent in the pool trying to progress beyond the doggie paddle I go through more than a few googles, swim jammers and fins.
Speedo and TYR have always kept me looking good and feeling fast in the pool (but mainly looking good).
One of the many things I’m still figuring out is proper nutrition and hydration while racing but I have discovered that staying hydrated throughout the week with nuun and hiding a couple Honey Stinger Gels in my running shorts or bento box always helps get me through the race a little quicker!
