2012...Bring It On!

Wow, have I been MIA for some time! So sorry about that! Life’s been crazy during the offseason, but I’m getting ready more than ever to crush the 2012 season! It got off to a bit of a late start but training has been going well and I’m looking forward to getting back out there and toeing the line yet again!

Things have been changing at GOHHGO (ha). Sponsors have come and gone. I have parted ways with K-Swiss and New Performance Nutrition. They were terrific companies at the start of my career and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their amazing support. I wish them the best in their future endeavors.

The NEW sponsors! –

I’ve signed on with Kask Helmets! After last year’s bike crash in which my helmet cracked like a walnut, I needed to find a helmet that would keep my noggin safe. Kask helmets are incredible. Not only are they safe, but stylish (I’m going to look like a rocket ship in my TT helmet) and crazy comfortable! Looking forward to doing great things in Kask Helmets!

I also signed-on with Gu Energy Labs! I already use Gu's to begin with so why not make it a more formal relationship. My products of choice? Chocolate Outrage Gel is a classic but Mint Chocolate is awesome! Also, the Recover Brew and Electrolyte Tablets work and taste great! Grapefruit? Who knew?!

I may have one or two more sponsors coming down the pipe-line so I can’t reveal them at this time obviously but I’ll be sure to let you all know as soon as I know!

This year’s race schedule is going to be a good one! Still working out the kinks but it looks like the season opener will be St. A’s on April 29. For the most part I’ll be hitting a fair amount of 5i50’s to try and qualify for the 5i50 season finale at HyVee. Barring any hiccups like last year, I’ll also be hitting the usual suspects – Escape From Alcatraz, Kelowna ITU, NYC. I even have some road races and swim meets?? Crazy I know, but have to get it done to break into that upper echelon!!

Check back soon for more sponsor news (hopefully!) and race schedule updates. And yes, GoHHGo Giveaways will be coming back!! Stay tuned!

Hope everyone had a great off-season and I look forward to what this season has in store!

Yup, LET’S GET INTO IT! Talk soon.
