Ironman Talk competition!
\We had a great pair of Oakley transition sunglasses that Rolland sent through for us to review. We decided that we would have a competition to give them away. So here’s what you need to do: Create an ad for Ironman Talk, around 30secs to a couple mins long, put it on YouTube.com and then link to it on Athlinks. We’ll pick three finalist and then we can all have a vote for the winner. Entries close at the end of August. It’s time to create!

Website of the week
\Here’s a site that Skip Kreymborg sent through:
I started triathlons in 1986 and have raced ever since including a 1999 Hawaii Ironman finish... back in the day everything was neon and wild....there is a company here in the states that promotes clothing of all wild prints...
I have had a saddle cover for years.. mine was getting old and worn out... I asked the company if they made them..(was not able to find them anywhere) they didn’t know what one was , so i mailed them mine. They used it as a prototype and mailed one back to me. I love it! I was asked to send in a pic and now I am on their website. Go to www.RunningFunky.com click on products then on to bike seat cover. thanks for your support on this.
Paul Andreas, who is based in Kansas City, sent through this weeks club website. KC mutisport is a great place to catch up with your tri buddies in Kansas. Check out their random photos! Here’s the website: kcmultisport.com
