Ironman Arizona Race Tips

It’s almost here. Ironman Arizona. After all the hundreds of consumed GU’s and Gatorades, waking up feeling like a bull-dozer hit you every morning for 4-12 months, and having your drive, courage and heart tested day in and day out, it’s time to see what it was all worth. Let me start by saying Arizona Ironman 2011 was my first, and I know what everyone has gone through with training. I’ve had the days when I’ve collapsed in tears on runs wondering how I was going to piece it all together come ray day, absolutely terrified of failing. It probably didn’t help I was only 22 years old and felt a little bit over my head. However, the fear is what fueled my training, and ignited my hunger to eat this race alive.

Fuel Belt R2O Revenge Hydration Belt Review

Fuel Belt has become more innovative with their newly designed hydration belt. With new features taking after the Helium Belt, the R20 Revenge offers molded holsters to take your bottles in and out of with ease with one hand. As compared to the elastic-band holsters of the alternative, this new design is going to make our lives as a triathlete much easier. Nothing’s more irritating than your nutrition not being easily accessible, and these easy-to-grab holsters will take that problem away. These belts are key when you’re putting in the long miles out there on the run and need the hydration. The belt also comes with a convenient pouch to hold your gels and nutrition (about 4 gels to be exact). This belt is a one-size fits all, so not to worry on guessing which belt size you are. The Revenge also conveniently comes in a multitude of electric colors to match all of your swag. The belt is a necessary addition to your plethora of training accessories.
