If you live in the Tampa Area....

I know, I know. I've neglected the blog for the past week. Being on the road since Sunday for work - well, at the end of the day I zone out to some quality reality tv and fall asleep. Specially with time change! Not only did I lose an hour - I lost another hour because I was in the east coast time zone! Talk about confusing.

Anyway - I was heading home from St. Petersburg Beach - and guess what I came across??



Trouble! Thanks to KC at 140 Point 6 Miles I was introduced to this crack. But the store was awesome! They did have some IM stuff - but it is also a kick ass tri store. I was in there forever chatting with Hunter, the store owner, who was very awesome. He said to come by on Saturday for their grand opening because they are giving away an entry to a 70.3 event AND a full IM. WHAT!?!? Which one I ask? He came back with "anyone you want to do". Holy cow. So if you live in the Tampa - it might be worth your time to swing by the shop. Check out their site: Ironman360.com

Thankfully I didn't spend a years salary - but I did pick up this beauty:


I LOVE fun suits - and I could not pass this one up. BUT I don't know if I want to wear it until after IMFL. I don't want to be a 'poser' in other athletes eyes. But the suit is so awesome - I don't know if I can wait until NOVEMBER. Thoughts on this?

CHLOE'S EDIT - ok. I'm going to save the suit until after the race. I'm going to hang it on my fridge or over the TV - something like that. And I will use this as motoivation.

Check out this sweet surfboard we found at a pawn store on the beach.

I guess it'll just be cooler to answer yes, when someone asks if you've ever done an Ironman :)

That looks like a store we could all spend WAY TOO MUCH MONEY, but well done on only getting the cute suit! There will be plenty of time in the future!!

Hopefully I'll get to see ya at the race! :)
