Well, friends, I have an announcement. I found out yesterday that I am an official member of the 2009 Team Trakkers! I am stunned and super-excited that I am entering the ranks of a sponsored triathlete. Let me tell you a little bit about what Trakkers does and you will be excited too.
Trakkers uses GPS tracking technology to transmit racing performance data directly to TrakkersGPS.com where family, friends and coaches can cheer you on as your race unfolds. It shows time, speed, heart rate, location, distance, current race position and more. This is great for me since my husband and the boys can't always come to every race, and my parents have never been able to come to a race since they live in a different state.
Trakkers also stores your race data online so you can analyze your race long after you cross the finish line. It can provide information about your race that can take your future training to the next level. The unit can be worn around your wrist or clipped to your waistband, and is stream-lined, lightweight, and waterproof. It also has a panic button feature just in case.
One of the reasons I applied for Team Trakkers is because they said they were seeking endurance athletes of all levels with families to help promote their product. I think it is a great product. It really lets me be connected to my family even if they can't always be with me. What else could a Trimommy ask for?
On a personal level, this is such a big deal for me. I'm just a trimommy, a middle-of-the-pack triathlete. I work hard, but will never be a pro. Even still, Trakkers thinks I have something to offer. Wow! As the season progresses, I will keep you updated about Trakkers products. Please let me know if you have any questions. For all of you trimommies and tridaddies, what a great way to share your love for triathlon with your most beloved people.
Now let's go train...
