My weapon for Ironman Western Australia

Saucony Fastwitch 4 in new Vizi Pro colour. They look like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, hahhah. My current Fastwitch 3 has been seving me well in all my races, so I decided to stick to what works well for me so far.

As Wiggle (which is one of my favourite websites now) gave free shipping for baskets above A$83 (which means the shoes cost less than that), I added in a pair of Speedo swimming paddles as my current pair has broken.

The rubber straps were too long, so I had to make several additional loops.

All at Li-Ann's expense as my birthday gifts. Thanks, darling! Love you!

U will continue to find the FW4 a real workhorse and the perfect racer for ur next IM. Not many shoes can come near the FW4 when we talk abt a race day shoe. Good luck.

Reita: Hahhah. Yeah, maybe I should cut short the straps and keep them as spare.

CCube: Thanks, yes will have to train up the legs to do justice to the shoes!

Karen: Hard to believe, aye? But it's true!
