A time & A Place for Everything

There are lots of people including myself who want to extend their lifestyle of triathlon into their workplace. It’s about enjoying what you do so that word work is actually irrelevant, as it doesn’t seem like work.

I like writing stuff. I love meeting people. I get paid for this. Don’t tell anyone but I would actually do this for free. But then again I have bills to pay so need a little money!

So, back to Trix-Gear. My friend Paul who raced Kona this year and his lovely wife Celeste are the people behind this funky label of casual tri apparel. He threw me some free T’s and asked if I would not mind modelling them, of course not I said, my pleasure. Although I was and am still a slighter rounder version of my racing self they fit well, and when I say fit I mean as in a chick fit – not big and baggy :)
I love the pink PaperDoll one and also the aero T that was featured recently in what 'we have noticed' on slowtwitch. And for a snug sexier look the ‘Triathlete” vest is a nice look. I have a little story about that, here we go…
So I am in Kona and have got my special VIP pass for the awards. I have absolutely nothing to wear. Now I know chicks always say this as an excuse to shop, but when my MALE roomies look at me with the “your not gonna go out in that are you” look, I honestly had nothing to wear!

So I put on the trademark skirt and paired it with the Trix vest. Looked pretty cute and we were going to the K-Swiss party after so, sexy casual-ish! But this look still got a sigh. Yeah it will do, its fine!
It's not me modelling, sorry to disappoint you!!
So we are walking down to the awards, and we get to one of those ABC (711 type) stores and he pops in to pick up bevy. Next door there is this really cute clothing store. He mentions that they have some cool stuff, so I took that as a blatant hint.

Shall I go get something then? Yeah sure! He says. So I go in, straight to the tops, pick the first thing I see, try it on, keep it on, go to counter, pay, get the guy to cut the label and just as this happens the roomie walks in and says “I didn’t mean it”!!! Yeah right.

Anyway, the top stayed and I am sorry Trix, your top didn’t get to be paraded at the awards, but you know, there is a time and a place for everything I guess and that this was a time to be subtle and girly!!!
