I want to get some bikilas too! and i am going to go with the bright colored ones....because I feel the need to stand out in them at Ironman Lake Placid! people love to cheer for participants wearing strange things...so perhaps some pink or purple compression sleeves for my calves will work with the shoes!
hmmm....along with my race top that I made that says "see you at the food tent" on the back of it...and I am sure to get comments!
hey...I'll take what ever bit of extra energy I can get from the crowd - a 26.2 mi run is hard enough, but putting it at the end of a 2.4mi swim and a 112mi bike - well...every bit of support helps! Even if its laughs from fellow racers!
Definately take pictures of your outfits. I'm sure a lot of us are interested to see your crazy don't hit me with your SUV outfits too!
