Tri Gear = $$$
Yep, decided since I am feeling pretty gung ho about doing some more races that I needed to get a few basics. I bought a Zoot tri top and a pair of Zoot tri shorts. Scored as they were 40% today! Then I "invested" in some new shoes. Apparently I need more "support" as my feet roll in some. I also needed more cushioning. I settled on a pair of Asics after having a gait analysis and the whole nine yards. I could have gotten them in black with neon blue laces, but I decided that screamed "trying to look 20" and settled on a white pair with purple trim. Socks were 50% off so I got a few pairs with "wicking" material. Really haven't had trouble with my plain old cotton socks, but figured I'd already broke the bank so what the heck. Then I picked up a race belt (in pink!) so that I could avoid having to pin anything to my $$$ tri top. :) Guess this means I am all in. I am hoping my husband will let me call this an "early birthday gift" and not be too ticked off with me.
