My new triathlon club – Wheelworks Multi Sport – is hosting their annual triathlon night tonight!  Jarrod Shoemaker is giving a presentation and there’s a raffle.  How sweet would it be to win some of these prizes:

Specialized bike frame, a set of Zipp wheels, a Zoot wetsuit, $50 gift certificate to Greater Boston Running Company (x2), racing tires, cycling jerseys, Oakley sunglasses

Weekend vacation home rental in Ogunquit Maine, a  Ballroom or Latin Dancing lesson (x2), One day pass to the MIT fitness center (x5), $100 gift certificate to Whole Foods, a free massage from Alt-thera, a Sailing charter at Boston Sailing Center, and much more!



Have Helmet, Will Travel

The Triathlete’s Weekend Getaway List:DC Bike Ride

  • Running Shoes
  • Shorts and Sports Bra
  • Helmet
  • Bike Shoes
  • Bike Shorts and shirt

What else do you bring when you’re headed out of town, but you need to get some training in? 

I thought it was pretty funny to have my helmet falling out of my bag at the airport when I flew down to DC a couple weekends ago.  But, I was so happy to have it!  Especially since Lauren lent me her bike so I could ride through Rock Creek Park – and Beth joined me for the ride!

I’m off to San Francisco next weekend.  I’ll definitely pack my helmet again.  Just need to find a bike to rent or borrow while I’m out there.  Any recommendations?
