There are a couple of reasons why I’m happy today:
1) it’s nearly Christmas, and
2) I just ordered by Team Zoot 2020 kit!
There aren’t many triathletes that don’t know the triathlon-specific apparel brand Zoot Sports, and for good reason.
Zoot Sports was founded in Hawaii in 1983 after the success of the Ironman World Triathlon Championships and the start of what would be an obsession for many international triathletes crazy enough to race that distance. So, this brand is rooted in the heart of triathlon and has been for many years.
Now, having moved to California and expanded worldwide, Zoot Sports brings together passionate athletes from all over the world to compete in Team Zoot. I have been lucky enough to be racing with them this season, and I’m so happy to be competing with my fellow Zoot athletes again next year.
It’s amazing when you turn up to a competition where you aren’t expecting to know anyone, yet just wearing the team kit draws the attention of strangers in identical trisuits to your own – those strangers instantly become team mates who high-five you when you pass each other on the course, or call out (a somewhat comprehensible) “keep going” to you when you’re feeling knackered on the bike or run!
I’m really looking forward to next year’s season, especially my first 70.3 in Marbella in April, and I can't wait to put on the brilliantly-bright colours of the Team Zoot 2020 kit as well as sliding back into my Great Britain uniform for the European and World Championships 2020!
It's going to be a busy season next year, but any other way is boring, right!?
