Triathlon Gear Update

In an effort to keep up with my triathlon related spending, I’m checking in with my latest gear/spending update:

  • Pearl Izumi thermal shoe covers $29.75
  • Giro Winter Wool Sock Pair $17
  • Giordiana Skullcap $21.25
  • Craft Siberian Glove $51.00
  • Surly Neck Gaiter $25.50

I got all of the above in preparation for my first triathlon of the season: Belews Lake International — an early April triathlon (you can read my race recap here). The weather forecast (water temp 68 degrees, outside temp mid 40s) had me concerned enough to buy $160 worth of gear the evening before my race. As much as I hated spending that much money, I wanted to be safe and not catch pneumonia or a really bad cold. Fortunately, I got 15% off all the gear I purchased above!
