Are you an Ironman (or Ironwoman)?

An Ironman Triathlon is a series of long-distance races consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike and a marathon 26.2-mile run, raced in that order and without a break.  If you think this is amazing, we do too.

Timex Ironman WatchTimex Ironman Watches have been used for more than 25 years by Ironman athletes.  They’re durable, easy to read and have a great memory recall feature.  For this article we chose the Timex 30-Lap Ironman watch.  We chose this watch because it has a cool feature that keeps 30 laps in memory and allows you to recall and review each lap.  How’s that for a training watch!  Oh, and it’s comfortable to wear too.  The 30 lap watches range from $40-$50 depending on size and color.  The watch pictured is about 40 bucks.

Wigwam, the performance sock company, is proud to have been the official sock of Ironman for the last 18 years.  According to our friends at Wigwam, more participants, finishers and champions have snapped the finish line tape wearing Wigwam socks.  All Wigwam Ironman socks are guaranteed to last at least 2-years. This year, Wigwam has brought back the ever-so-famous ULTIMAX technology to their socks. ULTIMAX is a patented moisture management system that effectively and efficiently moves moisture up and out of the sock away from your foot. This is key for every athlete. If your feet are comfortable, dry and blister free, it will make a difference in the outcome of a race. If not, Wigwam will refund your money!  The socks are less than $8 and totally worth trying.
