Heads-up: Huge Sports Tech Sale Underway – 20% Off All Smart Trainers!
There’s a massive sales on smart cycling trainers right now, plus plenty other sports tech. There’s 20% off the Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, CLIMB, Headwind, 20% off the Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, and Flux S, 20% off Saris Hammer 3 trainer and Saris MP1 Motion Platform. Plus also 20% off the Elite Direto X and Suito too, even the new Sterzo. Plus even steeper deals including with the Kinetic trainers at 30% off.
A minor milestone passed back a few months ago that I forgot to note. Well, I didn’t exactly forget, it’s just that it was right after Ironman Canada and right before Nation’s Triathlon, so I didn’t quite squeeze it in there. Plus, I lacked the correct culinary objects like last year to adequately express my milestone.
Better late than never, right? In the case of cupcakes…damn straight it is.

As of this past September, my little ole’ blog turned 2 years old. Since then I’ve somehow managed to write 428 posts about everything from Handling your Nuts to my Warmed Nuts to having dinner with the First Lady. In the process I’ve had about a quarter of a million unique folks drop by to read about whatever random thoughts float through my head. And in some cases, as a bonus item – it’s even triathlon related!
I started it simply for me, with no real specific end-state or topic goal in mind. And now, almost two years later – I’m not entirely sure I have a real specific end-state yet. I just blog about whatever I feel like – my life I suppose. From your perspective as readers it’s probably like shaking a magic eight ball as to what the next post will be. Sometimes you get hard core training, sometimes it’s a product review, and sometimes you get cupcakes.
On any given day over 50 countries show up at my blogstep representin’, with various former entities of the British Empire leading the way – US, Canada, UK, Australia – though I have strong showings from my Northern European and South American friends as well. But apparently, I’ve managed to tick off the censors in China…as I have just about an equal number of visitors from Iran as China. :-/ My bad.
So, just for fun – here’s a few of the more random posts I’ve done:
Though, there are plenty of hidden nuggets in the 418 remaining other posts out there…especially for all you long time readers.
So, to all who have dropped by, subscribed or posted a comment – Thanks! – I appreciate it. I hope I can keep on finding interesting things to write about, but based on what I can see in my little (occasionally flickering) crystal ball – we’ve got all sorts of fun coming up ahead of us.
I swim, bike and run. Then, I come here and write about my adventures. It’s as simple as that. Most of the time. If you’re new around these parts, here’s the long version of my story.

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
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. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you?
