Lots of people have been asking me to talk about my experience with the "Tutti Frutti" shorts I like to wear. And I've gained a LOT of experience with them this year - I've worn them for EVERY multi-sport race in 2011!
2011 Duathlons: Apple, Gear West, Oakdale, and Cannon Falls
2011 Triathlons: Life Time Fitness, Waseca, and Lake Marion
It's simple. It's easy to take this sport too seriously. And by wearing these shorts, it helps lighten the mood for others around me AND for myself. Remember people, we do this for FUN! (Well, MOST of us do anyway...)
I first wore them last August at the 2010 Waseca Sprint Triathlon, and I JUST wore them. My bottom got a little sore because they are just swim shorts. At every multi-sport race since then, I've worn a pair of Sugoi Tri Shorts under the Tutti Frutti jammer to get a little pad on the bike. (You can see the Sugoi Tri Shorts peaking out in that last photo above to the far right.) Other than the fact that they're just swim jammers, they are GREAT for racing in! The don't rub, they hold "things" in place, and they look
Pharmie came across these shorts about 14 months ago on SwimOutlet.com. She thought they were wild. I told her to order them for me. She thought I was kidding. Then she realized I wasn't kidding, but she thought I'd never wear them. Little did she know.... ;) Here's the link to the "Dolfin Winners ZAZA Jammer" on SwimOutlet, but as you can see if you click that link, they've been DISCONTINUED! I'll need to find another retailer to replace my pair when I wear them out!
And FYI, they have a female version that they are still selling! So go purchase the female version and race with me sometime!
