I loved this series, it was a major help, especially the Enell bra...I'm seriously looking into getting one.

A fun contest for anyone and everyone? Does that mean even Canadians can play?!? ;)

Great series. I hope you get tons of 'stuff' to review, especially if you can keep doing 'compare and contrast'

Looking forward to the contest!

Nice series! If you do this again, please consider writing your experiences with HR training. I know a lot of runners don't understand it and until I got into tris I didn't really either. Curious as to what you think.
