3 Weeks to Cobra 70.3 – Last Minute Shopping

Last night I did some last minute shopping at Amazon.com for items I need for Cobra.  These are to add motivation (again) and to remind me that hey I spent so much (again) therefore I should do my best and finish the race.

Reviews on this aero helmet are very good, plus I like the hibiscus flowers that will match my bike! Very feminine yet very firm looking!


My left eye can not identify the letter “E” in the Snellen Chart for vision testing done by the ophtalmologists. However my right eye has a very good one so I can still see somehow. But, after biking once in stormy Subic and having a very hard time sighting where I was riding, I decided to change the dark lenses of my Oakley shades so I can get a better view of the road… just in case. What if it rains in Cebu right? Better to have 2 shades, some even bring 2 pairs of wheels! However, the price of lenses here in Manila is the same as a new pair from Amazon.


Will this keep my hydration fluid cool to keep my cool? 🙂


I dropped my Speedfil’s bite valve (the white one) during one ride. Unfortunately parts of Speedfil’s hydration bottles are not for sale in Manila. So glad it’s available at Amazon.


Hopefully these will be delivered on time to meet Johnny Air’s cut off for consolidated shipment. Now, let me go back to work so I can pay for all these triathlon stuff!

Happy training everyone!

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
