The IFLOAT is an inflatable dry bag for swimming that easily attaches to you and keeps your stuff dry. No drag in the water. Highly visible to watercraft. Always with you in case of emergency.
Sharon Donnelly, Olympic Triathlete, co-created the IFLOAT and was at the K-Town Tri this past weekend selling this great product!
Come pick one up at the store for $59.99! Also, check out their website for a video about the product, including how to use it!
Runners’ Choice is proud to be one of the long standing sponsors of the K-town Triathlon.
The race takes place on Sunday, August 4th. Look for us down at the race expo at the KROCK center on Saturday and at the race site on Sunday. Stop by and check out some of our great specials and pick up your last minute race needs (like nutrition, race belts, easy laces, etc)!
Runners’ Choice will also be entering a relay team as well as some of our staff participating in the short course so please give us a cheer along the way!
And for your motivation, here is a brief look at what it’s like to do the tri through the eyes of a competitor (one of our staff wore a head-camera for the 2011 race):
