What did you get for Christmas 2018?
Quote | Reply
It doesn't matter how big or small, tri-related or not, tell us what you got!

I'll start. I got:

An Express set from black diamond and lots of other climbing stuff like a daisy chain and a flat sling.

A new phone so I can finally connect with the internet!! I think I'm the very last person ever to get a mobile with internet access!! My children are busy downloading must-have apps for me!!

And lastly new running shoes - Mizuno wave-inspire 14.

Nike Epic React. I am doing all of my running in different Nikes and Skechers. Five years ago if you had told me that I would run any miles in either Nike or Skechers, I would have scoffed.

Happy Runner book, (written by Megan and Dave Roche--Dave is a long-time poster on this forum--doesn't come around much any more but reading some of his old race reports is always entertaining). I have heard that the book is excellent.

Not quite a present discovered under the tree yesterday, but I welcomed a new bike into the family :)

I got my annual pool pass and gym membership and entry fees to whatever swim meets i want. Other than that, I am assuming that I did not get that crappy 2017 Xmas gift that I got to open in June from under a bus which said, "you are just lucky to be alive....now go back to rehab". If my Xmas gift is a normal year, which ideally includes being able to jog, then that will perfect. Other than that, I got my family and good friends. I'm not really much of a toy/materials guy. When my wife told me I could guy a fully loaded Audi A8 or Q7 for my 50th birthday, I returned from car shopping replacing my 6 year old black jetta base model with a new black jetta base model.

I got a lezyne floor pump, twin six jersey, PI socks, and gift card to LBS. Kinda psyched.

Let's start adding to this by saying notable things we GAVE for Xmas 2018 too! I gave sister in law one of those bird bottle cages from PWS. She's really into birds and is a budding triathlete, she loved it.

TriRig Alpha X to finally replace the stock Vision front end that came with my P2C 9 years ago. Now consider me impressed with the quality of all the parts and ingenuity of the design - all really nicely done. Suddenly the cost makes a lot of sense...

I used to run in nikes all the time :-)

I'm so pleased you mentioned the book, Dave is such an amazing human being - I miss him posting, with all his poo stories and great advice!! I'm definitely going to be buying this book.

I can imagine after this Summer Dev, that you are just happy to be alive. Life is so precious and I'm so pleased you're still around. Good luck with your swim tomorrow :-)

New pair of boots
A quality mouthguard for jiu jitsu (actually a kit for it; you make a mold of your teeth and send it to the manufacturer for a custom fit)
A replacement for my tattered university scarf from the school at which I did my junior year abroad

The SNES was by far my favorite gaming console. That is AMAZING. What games do you have for it?

Shed load of MucOff products. Degreaser, lube, various brushes, goggle/glasses cleaner, etc.

Renewed Singletrack (MTB magazine) subscription.

The MTB and I both get rather filthy this time of year in dear old Blighty. So the stuff will come in mighty useful over the next few months.

And new drivetrain bits - for when the next 4 months of mtb riding here in the filth rogers the current drive on the full susser senseless.

A great haul 😁

A "nokia withings body+" body fat percentage scales.
Probably just a toy rather than a serious measurement instrument.
After fighting at least for an hour with an app I had to download to configure the scales I have seen results of 20% and 11% upto now.
