Hi ShokzSquad! Dan Cox here, one of AfterShokz’ Global Ambassadors, updating you all on my journey to the 2019 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon!
Race day is quickly approaching, the pieces are coming together, and I’m getting excited to toe the line and race my brother for a bit of redemption. Up until this point, I’ve told you about my training so far, and how I've managed my workouts to get back to the start line. Now, with race day around the corner, I’m talking about the fun stuff. Here’s a peek at the gear I’ll be counting on to get me to the finish line.
The San Francisco Bay is no joke – with cold, rough waters and a strong current, a great race kit and a wetsuit is necessary. I rely on my thermal swim socks and skull swim cap to fend off the cold – gotta keep those extremities warm!
Having a great bike is critical. You’re going to spend a lot of time in the saddle, so it’s imperative to get fit at your local bike shop and know that even the slightest adjustments can make a significant difference.
I love the run because it’s the last part! Get your training in and top it off with a pair of shoes to complement your running gait. We don’t want to see any bruised toenails at the end of this race!
