Check out Peg's sweet new ride. We are taking her to get fitted for it today. It's a used Kestrel Airfoil. We purchased it from a friend who kept it in excellent condition. If everybody took care of their bikes like he did nobody would ever need to buy a new bike. There's a mix of Shimano Dura-ace and Ultrgra components, it has 650 Velomax wheels, he also gave us his 650 Zipp 404's, Reynolds carbon fiber front fork, Profile Design Aerobars and rear bottle cages, etc... She's going to fly on our next triathlon race. I'm going to havee train harder to make up for her new triathlon-speed-enhancing-aero-mobile. Any comments?

Michellie Jones was the featured speaker at the Orange County Triathlon club's last meeting. She was a very pleasant and inspirational person. The picture of her is at a wierd angle because I was sitting directly in front of her. She also passed around her silver medal. Sorry about the poor image quality, my phone doesn't take good pictures in low light.
For those who don't know who she is here are some of Michellie's many accomplishments are: 2x ITU World Triathlon Champion, Silver Medalist in the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Silver Medalist at the 2005 Ford Ironman World Championship and most recently 2006 Ironman 70.3 Hona, 2006 Ironman Arizona and Ironman 70.3 California winner.
This is the closest I will ever come to an Olympic Medal.

My friend who's moving gave me this race bike. Sweet! I've been told by many to turn it into a fixed gear. It sounds like a great idea for training so I'll probably do it. Last month my wife and I had 1 bike each. Now we each have 2. I'll be posting up a picture of her new sweet ride soon. The garage is getting crowded.
To all our friends please check out our new triathlon website. We're nearly up and running at full force. Although we officially open next month we'll be shipping stuff out as soon as possible. Just a little secret ;) Check out all the triathlon gear that we're carrying. Alan already purchased a slick new 2xu Comp1 wetsuit. Go here for our triathlon wetsuits selection. We're pushing to add as many brands as possible. Let us know if you have any questions. Ttyl.
