Spreading the Love!

This post is a big ole' thank you and spreading the love to some great companies.  I'm back on the Betty Designs team for 2015, and this year a bunch of great products have also come on board to support us.

I can't wait to unveil our team kits for this year - but they're top secret for now - and of course like everything Kristin does, they are edgy, rad, and gorgeous!  I will be posting Betty Designs discount coupons every now and then, so check back.  And click the link on the side of my blog to shop!

And now, hugs to all these great sponsors that have joined us for 2015!

Roka wetsuits:

I first started seeing these wetsuits a few years ago, and now it seems like every race I go to, I see more and more.  Their company philosophy is fantastic, too!  Not only do they have wetsuits and swimskins, they've got goggles, accessories, apparel and more coming down the pike in March.  So excited!  Plus, they are also a sponsor of Jason's team: Team Every Man Jack - love from the whole family!

Nytro Multisport:

My love affair with Nytro started in 2000 when Jason went to race the inaugural Ironman California (back when it was a full 140.6, today it's a 70.3; incidentally he was 9th overall and won the men's 30-34 age group).  Every time I go to visit friends in the Encinitas/North County area, I always stop in at Nytro and rarely leave empty-handed.  A triathlon gear mecca!


I haven't worn Asics in a while and am pumped to get back into them.  I remember at the 2001 Vineman 70.3, I was looking for a new pair of shoes and stumbled upon the Asics DS Trainers at the race expo.  Yeah, yeah, don't try anything new on race day... but I wore them and loved them!  I've been through more than a few pairs since; they were also my race-day shoes for Ironman Arizona in 2010.  Looking forward to getting reacquainted with the brand!

Bonk Breaker:

I first tried Bonk Breaker during some 70.3 events - yummy and a great energy source!  Looking forward to fuelling my training and racing with them this year... and they have something top-secret coming out Feb. 2 - stay tuned!


A perfect sponsor for both Jason and I, as we go through so much of this stuff to stay hydrated on hot summer rides!  I plunk a tablet into each bottle I ride with - electrolytes and great taste, without sugar.  So stoked!


Um yeah - GoPro - how rad is that!  My dad gave us a GoPro last year, and we've had a great time shooting videos while riding and swimming.  Looking forward to being able to pair it with some cool accessories and see what we come up with for home movies in HD!

So stoked that Team Betty 2015 has so many great partners that obviously believe in us and what we do.  2015 is going to be fabulous!

Wet, Warm, Winter Ride

I wasn't feeling optimistic about how yesterday's ride was going to go when this was the view driving to meet Coco:

But in the end, we had the trail virtually to ourselves.  It wasn't too wet, and was pretty warm for January.  It's never a bad day on the bike!

Looking down the trail.

Good company!
