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:
Fun interview I did about the background of my blog:
I was interviewed last week for The Peaceful runner, and talked a bit about the background of my blog and what things are like behind the blog. Enjoy!
Stuff that I found interesting around the interwebs: Here’s a not-so-small smattering of all the random things that I stumbled on while doing my civic duty to find the end of the Internet:
1) Ten refreshing wines for after a ride: One of the random food blogs I follow wrote up a piece for Bicycling Magazine post-ride refreshing wines, for those of you who prefer something other than Chocolate Milk.
4) Golden Cheetah releases new version of free analysis software: The big items of note include the addition of Virtual Power, Aerolab improvements, and .FIT file support for Mac (which means Garmin file support). Golden Cheetah is an awesome software suite for pretty deep analysis of activities, primarily cycling focused.
6) Triathlon America 2012 Keynote: CEO Andrew Messick speaking at the Triathlon America conference a few weeks ago. Worth a watch, tons of little tidbits dropped in there about the future of WTC and the Ironman brand.
8) Really deep subs: Ok, something different. Well, not entirely different – we often swim in the oceans, so this is sorta related. You’ve probably seen the news of some of the upcoming deep-sea subs going to make some attempts over the next few weeks at getting to the deepest points on earth. Here’s some thoughts from one of the filmmaker guys I spent a week with on my great white shark trip.
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? 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 2018 Gear Guide too.
