So lets talk about my new tri suit. It's a two piece and not in a light color but that's where my positive spin on this outfit ends. It's so friggin tight, if I wore some thing made out of liquid latex and duct tape it would seriously be less form fitting than what I bought. When I showed Joe last night, he almost choked on his wine trying to hold in his laughter. I brought an expert with me (thanks Kali!!) and even heard from the resident tri guy at the store...it's how these things are supposed to fit. Let me tell you, it took a lot of balls to wear it around my neighborhood for our afternoon run today. I was tempted to not wear it but felt like I need to give it a try and get used to not only riding in it but also running. After wearing it for a bike/run brick I do really like it. On the bike it's great, doesn't ride up anywhere and although I was a bit hesitant to go with shorts with a chamois I was really loving the extra padding. After a transition that included a diaper change and quick meal for the kiddo, running in it was just as comfortable. I did have my Sox hat pulled as far down on my forehead as possible to avoid eye contact with my neighbors who must have wondered if I'd lost it. I did laugh at myself in this technical outfit that was paired with a Sox hat that's more grey than blue, mis-matched pink ankle socks and a baby in a stroller. So at this point I'll look like the real deal out on the course, but I'm not sure I'll wear it around my neighborhood again!
