Feels Like Christmas

It's no secret how much I like Skirt Sports and when they have a sale, I get really excited. Just a couple weeks ago a sale popped up and things that I really "needed" were on sale. I could not resist.

Ok, I have been looking at trisuits and really do need something like that if I actually plan to participate in these triathlons that I am registered for.

I decided on the 8" tri shorts and the tri tank. I like the idea of two pieces rather than one.  I also was able to score a Free Ride Jersey. My first bike shirt.  In addition to that, I saw capris that looked really nice. I have been eyeing their capris for some time now and I really liked the color that they had, Sunset Punch.  

Thinking about tri stuff, I really "needed" the race belt skirt to go over my tri shorts. That brought me to $2 away from free shipping. Ummm, you got to have free shipping!  So I added the Go Get Em Socks. 

Then I waited.  And waited some more.  Was I being impatient or was it taking a little longer than usual for everything to arrive?  Finally, I gave in and called after my tracking number stopped showing me where my stuff was.  

I was so excited to get Noelle on the phone. She is my Skirt Sports contact but we have only emailed when it comes to contests and reviews. It was nice to put a voice to a person.  In no time she found my order and let me know it would be here in a day or two.  

I waited and sure enough they arrived two days later. It felt like Christmas morning.  I opened everything right away to look at it all.  I didn't know what to try on first.

Race Belt Skirt and Tri Tank and Shorts

Everything fit perfect and I knew I would wear the Redemption Capris on my next run. That run was Thursday and we headed out for 6 miles.  The capris were perfect!  They moved nicely with me and the pocket in the back held my inhaler and key.  The girls love the color too.

I will keep you posted on the rest of the stuff as I wear them.

Two days after that, I finally, after almost two years, received my Bia Sport Watch.  Christmas times two!

I couldn't get the box opened fast enough, but first, a picture.

It was smaller than I pictured it but liked how it felt on my wrist.  I registered it right away, which took only a couple minutes.  So very easy!  It has a swim, bike, run option and soon it will have Tri option. It is going to be nice not to have to count laps in the pool.  The feature that really caught my attention though, the real reason I wanted to have this particular watch, was the SOS button.  You can link up to five people and if you hit the emergency button for 4 seconds, it lets them know you are in trouble.  It will also tell them where you are even if you are still moving.  This is a smart watch and I can't wait to give it a spin.  I will blog once I use it for the first time.

Were you a Bia Backer?  How do you like it so far?
