Trimarni Run/Tri/Cycling kits - store is OPEN!

  Check out Trimarni hubby (Karel) racing strong in the Trimarni black run/tri top!       This is just a friendly reminder that the Trimarni tri/run top, tri/run bottoms and NEW cycling jersey and cycling shorts (PINK OR BLACK) are ready for you to put them to good use!       The store is OPEN and will close at the end of the day on May 1st, 2013 (tomorrow!). This is a custom order so after 5/2/13 I will not be able to purchase any more pink/black Trimarni kit items from Canari Cyclewear until we decide on another order (Likely in the fall).       Any questions?   Let me know (or read more on my website). Enjoy, happy shopping and thank you for your support!   I look forward to many active bodies putting these items to good use - training, exercising and/or crossing finishing lines. (we have cycling shorts now in addition to run/tri shorts!) SHOP HERE

I stop before I need to stop, I walk to ensure less residual fatigue and I am focused on form, not speed. As for swimming - I love to swim and not sure how much I will improve over the next 2 months but for me to get faster, I have to swi
