“Meet Pete”

Ironman Pete is a veritable anti-gear triathlete. He out-swims everyone in the pool in fifteen-year old Speedo goggles and baggy knee length trunks, yet he still holds high school swim records! In this un-staged photo from a recent brick workout, Pete wears gym shorts from circa 1987 over cotton sweat pants with white tube socks and a Target windbreaker.

While understated about his skills and drive, he's truly an athlete. Let's get him into some proper gear for the LTF tri long course this summer. He's a winner in my book, please pick Pete to be a gear-winner too!


“No More Nipples!”

My hubbs, Taylor, started doing tris in 2008 and this is the first piece of wardrobe he purchased to start his endeavors. Much to my horror, the good deal he got on a tri suit happened to have a see-through white top. But, he is a champ and wears it proudly. HELP! This year, he will be competing in the Hy-Vee Triathlon again, his first Xterra off-road triathlon, and also his first half-marathon (to name a few) and he should be rockin’ a tri suit that shows the ripples, not the nipples.

Are you smuggling pepperonis under your suit?

“Lightning McCuen: Freaky Geeky!”

My boyfriend, Matt, is the nerdiest runner in the Cities! He’s an engineer who thinks he can run at the speed of light, but really, it’s just his shirt. You see, he has this shirt that is blue in the front and red in the back. He says that something going the speed of light would look blue coming towards you and red going away from you due to the spectrum of visible light. While he thinks it’s really cool, to most people it just looks super dorky. Help out my fashion challenged (but beloved) engineer!

Well deserved. I think the winners should all send in photo's showing their old 'race' gear in a bonfire. :)

Ha! Mario, that's a GREAT idea!

Congrats, gentlemen! FRIGGIN AWESOME duds - don't get caught-up in the gear hoopla, keep rockin' the sense of humor, the sport is in dire need of people who don't take themselves too seriously... but trash-talk is must :)

YAY! Pete totally deserved the first place finish - will he really wear the new gear though? I'd like to see a follow-up on that one. Congrats dudes!
