It's Triathon Day! And a Triathon Day Sigg Water Bottle Giveaway too!

++This giveaway is now closed++

Today, perhaps right now, I am racing!

I have my race packet -- purple swim cap included! My number is: 454.
There is my stuff all packed and that's the awesome transition towel I got in Miami, I LOVE IT!! Is it not the cutest transition mat ever???

It is officially the start of triathlon season and I'm doing the Escape from Ft. DeSoto sprint triathlon! Which means I was very likely up at 3:30 a.m., eating my bagel with peanut butter and Polaner All-Fruit in strawberry and drinking coffee (I'm getting nervous just writing this - my fingers actually just went numb! They went numb again when I was editing this post!)

And then it is quite possible that we left before 4:30 to get to transition by 5:15 because we like to get the good spots on the bike racks and have time to decompress before things get started.

This is the most excited and confident I've ever felt for a race yet! I've done the course a zillion times and I'm no longer worried about the swim. (Until St. Anthony's that is, I have some angst about that one but let's focus on one race at a time, shall we?)

And while we're at it, let's celebrate the start of tri season, shall we?


Have you heard about "Planet Gear"? It's a really cool website that just launched and they want to give YOU a present!

The website offers exclusive online deals for all sorts of different products, for a limited time, but only for members. Anything from outside gear to trips to books, it depends on what special they're running and when! You can only get in on the specials if you're a member and if you refer your friends, you give them an automatic $10 credit. If they buy something, YOU get the credit too.

Today Planet Gear is giving one lucky reader a pair of really cool Sigg Water Bottles, a set for mom and babe! Pictured are the Summer Breeze and the Little Monkey, and they're really cute and BPA FREE! Because who doesn't want to be stylin and profilin while they're hydratin'.

One of the cutest things I've seen in a long time is a line of clothing called "Mountain Mama," which is for expecting outdoorswomen! How unique and awesome is that?? That is what the next sale is going to be. And the pictures of this maternity-wear are adorable!
