Triathletes Sabotaged with Thumbtacks

I hate to say it but this happens quite often.  I have personally seen it done in Clermont where I live.  Someone dumped two boxes of tacks in two different locations.

Be careful and watch out while you are cycling.

Metalachi - Something completly Un-TRI related

WARNING 1: This is what happens when you over train for an Ironman...

WARNING 2: Some language in the videos and Metalaci link may not be work safe.

OK, I admit I'm a huge 80's rock/metal fan!!  While watching my normal Dio, Queensryche, Metallica, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, etc YouTube videos I somehow came across something completely new.  It is a band called Metalachi.  The world's first (and only) heavy metal mariachi band. 

These guys ROCK!!  Just image if you threw  "The Three Amigos", Kiss, Motley Crue and Gun N Roses and a few Christmas light covered sombreros in a blender, the result would be Metalachi.  These guys have played at some big name bars (Whiskey A Go Go and the Roxy, etc).  They have a unique "talent."




Below is Metalachi's cover of Master of Puppets, Nothing Else Matters and Winds of Change.  AWESOME!! RADICAL!!

Catch Up

Sorry for the lack of updates for the two of you who read my blog.  :-) 

I've been slammed with Ironman FL training.  This weekend was 77 miles on the bike and 13 miles running.  The 13 miles running was followed by seven hours of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure with my family.  I consider that a brick!

Less than 89 days till my Ironman Florida.  This will be my first Ironman full distance event.

Bonnie and I are famous.  We are spotted several time on Ironman's 2013 Appreciation video

RooSport 2.0 Wallet - KickStarter



I have the RooSport 1.0  and love it for small runs during lunch time where I have to carry my security badge, my locker key, cash, 1-2 gels, credit card, etc..  It's nice, small and comfortable to carry.  I have used it twice a week for almost 2 years now and have been happy with it.

For me, it's a little to small for anything more than a training run.  I would not want to carry more than about 2 gels in it (but maybe that will change now that it is becoming larger).  I also could not see putting my cell phone into it due to the weight and discomfort (but maybe others do not notice).

The magnets are super strong and I have not had any issues with them.  The material is  nylon and very comfortable.  No chaffing or discomfort. 

It is not waterproof (but none of my belts are).  I always recommend putting all your moisture sensitive items in a zip top bag.

This would be a good product to use while traveling to carry/conceal your valuables and passport.  It would also be good for those days where you only need to carry a few items around instead of carrying your whole purse or wallet.

I am excited to see the new/upgraded version being offered on Kickstarter.  Go check it out here.
