A quick update of awesomeness!

I wanted to update with something so here is something.

In all seriousness, I do have some updates. First and foremost, New Brighton Sprint Tri on Saturday!!!!! I have been itching all winter for this. Although I started off in Alexandria with a good showing, the first ourtdoor tri is making me anxious. This will mark the 1 year mark from my first tri, so I am excited to see what I have gained over the course of a year. Last year my time was 1:34:26. I had set some goals for this race and even have modified them a bit:
- 1:3x /100 yard Swim, 1/2 mile course
- 20 MPH Garmin Average - 14 miles
- Sub 22 Minute 5k
- Based on these goals, I set a goal of going under 1:20
- I had also seta another goal of 1:15 being the best I could possibly do and may get me on the podium
- Finally I have been crunching numbers and think that I may be able, God willing, and everything going right, to run very close to 1:10

I know a 10 minute gap is a large difference over this short distance, but I am pretty confident with the 1:20 goal, thinking I could come in around 1:15. The additional 5 minutes are if I can break the mental barrier and race harder than Alexandria on the bike (and hopefully better conditions.)

That sums up my thoughts for the weekend in a nutshell. On to the next thing. I have been talking and talking about these reviews I am doing, and I am going to talk some more. I am finishing photos for Wahoo Fitness Fisica ANT+ receiver for the iPhone. I am also mid-review of the Sleeptracker watch. I just got word back that I will be reviewing a product similar to the Fisica but offered by PedalBrain I should have this in early July, from a local Twin Cities company. I also just received a HydroTail from Beaker Concepts to add to The Great Hydration Debate

As always I have other things in the works to hopefully keep you updated with the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and gear. It is going to be a busy summer!

Next weekend I will be doing the MS150 ride from Duluth to the Twin Cities to raise money for the MS Society. Please click the link above and donate a few dollars to my campaign, every little bit helps! I picked up my team jersey last week and will be putting some pictures up shortly.

Last but certainly not least, I am proud to announce I have been chosen as a member of the 2010 MARATHON Bar team. Although it is very early in the game for this yet, I should have some cool pictures and information in the next week or so, so stay tuned. I am very excited to be working with such a great group of athletes with similar interests, but from such different parts of the country.
