>My new job.

>Starting this March, I will be the manager of the 2009 USAT Endurance Mobile Tour. This means that I will be traveling across the Western US promoting USA Triathlon and many of its partners. We will be driving a fully loaded RV and pulling a trailer. We will set up a booth at each event (about 24) across 7 states. There we will hand out goodie bags with product samples, rent out gear, run a retail store, and have a “cool down” area where athletes can relax.
We will set up CompuTrainers so people can ride Blue bikes, sometimes have an Endless Pool for people to swim in, and of course demo the latest Rudy Project helmets and eyewear. The tour will be striving to be environmentally friendly at each event. We have also partnered with Soles for Souls so bring us your used running shoes. I want to invite everyone to come and visit us along the way. As well as my usual blog, we are starting a new one just for this adventure. Check out usatri.blogspot.com to see what we are up to.
I will need lots of help, so anybody in these areas is more than welcome to come and volunteer! I will have a ton of cool gear for anyone that shows up for a day or a weekend.
