List of gear and equipment I generally use for training, races, or just casual fun.

As you can see I own a lot of Specialized stuff ... largely because the racing team I used to be on was sponsored by Specialized.  So naturally you want to support the products that support your team.  Despite not currently aligned to a team at the moment, I'm still fairly loyal to the brands I've used and currently using (almost to a fault, haha!), and I know that they work for me and my training/racing needs.  I'm still figuring out the right gear for swimming and running as I'm still relatively new to these sports, so always looking for suggestions and recommendations!
