Back last month I got a mysterious package in the mail. That in and of itself isn’t too unusual actually. I get all sorts of packages that I’m not expecting. Sometimes companies will delay and/or forget to send out a sample and then it arrives weeks (or months) later – expectantly. But this one was actually not from a company, nor a product to be reviewed. Rather, this was from a friend: Carl. Last year he raced Ironman Louisville to help benefit one of the local shelters here in the DC area. Good guy.
Packages from friends and family are always way better than packages from companies. First off, they mean more to me. Secondly, sometimes they’re baked goods – like Christmas Cookies from my Aunt. And thirdly, they aren’t usually tied to any sort of product review. Which means I can simply just enjoy it without having to take a of photos of it.
But as soon as I opened this, I realized that I indeed did need to take photos. Simply because it was that awesome.
In fact, it was so awesome that it came with special ‘proper care’ instructions. Now I suppose all variants of this particular item do, but somehow these suggestions made it all that much better.
Of course, the real kicker is the swim cap itself. For those of you that don’t know by now (approximately four of you), I love sharks. Especially big ones. Thus, there’s no more awesome swim cap than the below:
But it gets better – the other side has awesomeness too!
The only area I see for improvement would have been to add a few items to the warning label about not being a ‘life saving device’, nor that it ‘would deter sharks and/or act as a shark repellent’. But I can look past that.
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.

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.
