Hilarious Clif Bar Commercial – Triathlon Swim Starts

“You need to train the way you race” Hilarious Clif Bar commercial. Pretty true to form for most Triathlon starts I’ve been involved in.

Review: JiMarti TR90 JM01 Sunglasses

Biking, which was their intended purpose. Here’s where they earned a spot in a protected area of my trunk with my cycle gear and not in the general junk population. Again they were light, blocked the suns brightness quite well, and stayed put through the ride.
