So as many of you know, I've managed to gain for myself quite an addiction to endurance racing, especially triathlons.
One of the down sides of all the swim training, is that after a while you develop a rather strong chlorine odor... You'd think that with all the sweating I've been doing on the bike trainer down in my basement, that this wouldn't be too much of an issue, but according the Mrs Koda, it still is. The other downside with excessive training is that a person's libido tends to increase, at least during those times you're not either working out, or fast asleep on the couch from exhaustion. But that particular side effect causes some conflicts when your body smells like the locker rooms at the local aquatic center.
Last year I found a line of products from a company called SBR Sports. The product line is called Tri-Swim and it claims to have a formulation which neutralizes the effects of chlorine on the skin. I can't state with total certainty that it does, but it seems to, and the moisturizer not only works really well, but it smells really good too!
So I've become a pretty big fan of Tri-Swim products.
Now you may be asking, what made today the best day ever? In all fairness, I'm sure I've had better days... The day I got married, births of my kids and stuff like that, but...
A local race production company had a twitter contest this morning, and I won!! And the prize was a Tri-Swim gift basket!!!
The race folks are the ones who put on the BASH winter tri, which my kids and I are volunteering at on Saturday, and they also do the BAM triathlon in August. I'm doing the BAD-ASS challenge at that one this year. Olympic distance triathlon, Off-road duathlon and 10k trail run, all within a period of about 24 hours. And it will include a camping trip with the whole clan as well.
