Buying a little more speed

I just ordered one of these aero helmets for my 2008 season. Maybe it will only give me a psychological boost, but every little bit helps! I can't afford the psychological boost of race wheels yet, so I'll settle for this for less than 1/10th of the price.

Besides, I can't leave Geekgirl out there feeling geeky all by herself as the only RocketAir-propelled Athena in triathlon.

Maybe I ought to think about actually riding my bike a little, too, huh? I got in a swim today - a whopping 100 yards when we took the girls to the pool to make up for the lesson Catherine missed yesterday because of my race.

I just ordered one of these toys, too. Just so I wouldn't get lost going to race starts, of course. My training buddy David used one in the car yesterday when I drove and it was impressively slick, even for someone with a pretty good sense of direction.

I should have bought Garmin stock way back when. . . .

one of my best purchases EVER was my nuvi. It is absolutely awesome. And I love to hear her talk, especially when I don't follow her directions. You can almost hear her sigh before she says "Recalculating..."

My favorite part of the Garmin thingy is when you don't turn the way it says, in a petulant voice, "recalculating..." You can almost hear the sigh.

Holy cow. J-wim and I were thinking the exact same thing. Bizarre!

You are gonna love that lid! It is very, very fast...you can actually feel the speed wafting over you.

Your becoming a GPS addict. Next thing ya know you'll be duct taping GPS devices onto your kids. Although when they get older it may not be such a bad idea.
