Yesterday after getting home from work, The Girl had a little present all wrapped up for me. After I delicately opened (read: tore open without regard) the carefully wrapped package, I found myself a new t-shirt – designed and imported exclusively from The Girl’s own single-item clothing line (she actually makes really impressive dresses too…but I don’t generally wear them). She had mentioned earlier in the summer that she was going to work on a t-shirt that I had to wear while up at IMC this year, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But, after seeing presented it to me last night – it’s pretty kick-ass.
Thus, I give you – my official t-shirt:
On the front it features a moose, with the a maple leaf outline in red. And on the back it features…well, it’s pretty obvious what it features…me (and 140.6 miles, the distance of the Ironman race).
On the two sleeves we’ve got more cool stuff. First up – my right sleeve – offering a pictorial of all three sports:
And on my left sleeve, our Coach’s logo (we both have the same tri coach):
HOWEVER!!!!! THAT’S NOT ALL!
She also made a t-shirt for herself – and hers is pretty rockin’ too! Here she is modeling it off this morning:
That’s my bib number on the front, traced in the outline of…well…a bib. Along with the prerequisite Ironman Canada text.
And on the back:
Well, I’ll let ya read the text for yourself. 🙂
And the good news is she got the OK from work last night to be able to come along for the full trip. Woohoo – road trip! So her and I are bailing out to Seattle later this evening and then up to Penticton (the race site) early Thursday morning with the rest of the family. Catch ya on the flip side!

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products.
