Since the beginning of my triathlon training, I’ve had trouble with my goggles leaking…not to mention they were super painful to wear. I think this might be one of those times when it’d be really nice have some female triathlon friends. When consulting male triathletes, the only response I seemed to get about my ill-fitting goggle conundrum was, “Um, I don’t know. I’ve never had any problems.” I think it’s also safe to say that they’ve never had any issues trying to find a swim top that was supportive enough to run in either…
That said, I found a pair of women’s petite swim goggles at REI! Who knew they even existed, right!?
Might I also suggest some petite running tights (at 5ft 2in, too long athletic pants are one of my other gear troubles)?
Also, I learned that REI is actually a coop, which means they are member-owned and can (and do) choose to spend some of their revenue on environmental and community non-profits. For $20, I signed up for the lifetime membership and am eager to check out their member-only used gear “garage sale” this Sunday.
Can’t wait for the cooler weather to roll around to go back for some fall running and cycling gear!
