The Week in Review is a collection of both all the goodness I’ve written during the past week around the internet, as well as a small pile of links I found interesting – generally endurance sports related. I’ve often wondered what to do with all of the coolness that people write, and while I share a lot of it on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus, this is a better forum for sending it on to y’all. Most times these different streams don’t overlap, so be on the lookout at all these places for good stuff!
So with that, let’s get into the action!
DCRainmaker.com posts this past week: Here’s all the goodness that ended up on the main page of DCRainmaker.com this week:
3) Garmin Updates Course Creator: You probably remember back a bit ago when Garmin re-added Google Maps to GC (you did remember that, right?). Well, they just updated the course creator to recognize trails in Google Maps. This means that bike paths, etc… are now understood. Goodness.
5) Training Peaks adds Coaching equivalent of Match.com: I thought this was interesting. I’m not aware of anything similar in this space. I think it would also be really interesting if current athletes were able to somehow provide feedback for their current coaches – revealing that to potential candidates. My idea probably needs a bunch of tweaking, but I think there’s some potentially cool stuff that could come out of this down the road.
6) Velodrome coming to Washington DC: This this doesn’t impact everyone, it’s still cool to see. Some nice renderings in there – and it’ll be just in the shadow of our newish Nationals ballpark. Awesome!
Sneak peak…these arrived this weekend, good times ahead:
And while I can tell ya all about the top picture (LeMond Revolution Trainer with Power Pilot)…the bottom box photos are considered highly restricted for now. Fear not…it’s some sweet stuff. And no, it’s not cookies. Those…well I ate those already.
Thanks for reading, have a great remainder of your weekend!
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 2021 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s Gear Guide too.
